Welcome to the Saudi Arabia focus edition of Law Update.
One of the key markets in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) that continues to lead from the front is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). As the largest country in the Middle East and the 18th largest economy in the world, the progress KSA continues to make is underpinned by its Vision 2030 that envisions developing the country as an investment powerhouse and hub that ultimately connects Asia, Europe, and Africa. Given Saudi Arabia’s significance to the regional economy, our team of experts have prepared a range of pertinent articles that provide insights into new laws, regulations, and the legal landscape in the Kingdom.
This edition will provide you with an up-to-date guide on matters such as; the framework issued by the Saudi Central Bank on IT governance, the anti-corruption landscape under Vision 2030; we also provide practical tips for dispute avoidance. This is only a snapshot; there are many more articles within the KSA focus section for you to read, which we hope you will find valuable and enjoyable.Read the edition
Al Tamimi & Company were presented with two awards at the Qatar University Externship Program Employer Ceremony. Hani Al Naddaf (Partner) and Roy Georgiades (Senior Associate) attended the ceremony in Doha, and were presented with notable awards in recognition of the firm’s contribution to student career development.
The firm was recognised as the leading firm taking part in the Law School’s ‘Externship Program’; having taken on the most Externship pupils over the years since the program’s inception in 2011. Hani Al Naddaf was also presented with an individual award in respect of lectures in 2015 to students of the Law Faculty.
Being recognised for the award is a reflection of Al Tamimi’s commitment to Qatarisation and the award is an honour – in light of the many law firms who participate in the program annually.
