We are delighted to bring to you this special Saudi Arabia focus.
It has been a testing year since we last focused on the Kingdom, however notwithstanding COVID 19, there has been a very broad spectrum of legal developments in that period. Normality is rapidly reasserting itself and the Kingdom’s drive to realize Vision 2030 will certainly pick-up pace again in 2022. We foresee further changes on the regulatory front alongside the growing private and public investment interests in the Kingdom. These are backed-up by greater sophistication in new disputes laws, data, tax, HR, IP and financial crime regulations. In this issue of Law Update, we cover a range of trending issues in Saudi Arabia, which we hope you will find useful and enjoyable.
