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
Bahrain has a long and rich history in a range of business sectors from banking and finance to industry and manufacturing and international trade. Its proximity to the Eastern Provence of Saudi Arabia and its ties with the rest of the GCC and the region are key to Bahrain’s success. Recognizing the importance of the Bahrain market, we opened in the Bahrain Financial Harbour on 1st July 2014 marking our presence in all GCC countries. We have significant regional support from all of Al Tamimi’s network of 16 offices throughout the Middle East and our spread of experienced lawyers across the region enables us to work in multidisciplinary teams and handle all aspects of any matter.
Our decision to open an office in Bahrain was driven by a number of factors, including demand from our existing clients wanting to do business there because of its business-friendly approach to foreign investment and the opportunities that this presents to our clients. Significantly, Bahrain was the first GCC state to enter into a bilateral free trade agreement with the United States.
With a deep understanding of Bahrain’s business, legal and regulatory system, our aim is to be the first choice law firm for companies locally, regionally and from around the world. The firm is duly licensed to practice in its own name without local association, allowing us to appear on behalf of our clients before Bahrain courts and allowing us to ensure a consistent and high-quality legal service to all our clients.Contact us
