The first Law Update of 2024 is here, and our first focus of the year spotlights Healthcare and Lifesciences, a sector that is undergoing significant growth and development across the MENA region.
Our focus provides an insight into some of the most important regulatory updates across the region, such as the UAE’s groundbreaking law on the use of human genome, Kuwait’s resolution on nuclear and radioactive materials, the new regulations for healthcare services in Qatar, Egypt’s healthcare regulatory framework, and the impact of the Saudi Civil Transactions Law on the healthcare and life sciences sector … and there is so much more!
Beyond the healthcare pages our lawyers share with you multi-sector insights where you will discover articles on Dubai’s DIFC regulatory framework for startups, Bahrain’s commercial agencies law, and we also shed light on Kuwaiti civil code and the advantages of setting up a joint stock company in Saudi Arabia.Read the full edition
I am pleased to announce that Mohamed Khodeir, a partner in our Corporate Commercial team, has assumed the role of acting head of our equity capital markets team.
Many of you will know Mohamed, who was a partner in our equity capital markets practice several years ago before heading our office in Qatar and then relocating to Egypt to establish our office in Cairo.
Mohamed recently re-joined the firm after acting as the CEO of the General Authority for Investment and Free Zones in Egypt. Mohamed’s profile can be viewed here for your information.
Mohamed has been appointed to this position as Ahmed Ibrahim will be leaving the firm. Please direct any communications and requests for support relating to equity capital markets or securities market issues to Mohamed – email@example.com.
I am very much looking forward to building on the success of our equity capital markets practice across the Middle East, particularly at a time where markets in the region are becoming increasingly active.
