This month we have a packed Law Update focusing on a sector that is a vital pillar for the region as it continues to push its economies to diversify. Education.
The Education sector has experienced, and overcome, its fair share of challenges. Today, across the region, it serves as an educational hub for nationals, residents, and a growing number of inbound international students.
The advances being made in the Education Sector are a result of Government initiatives being put in place to propel the sector to a global standard. This has piqued private sector interest and we are seeing more public private and international partnerships.
With Education being vital to the progress the region is making, we have a created an edition of Law Update that provides insights, commentary, and updates on the most pertinent developments within the sector. The articles come from a number of jurisdictions across the region and highlight key considerations and the latest legal trends taking shape.Read the full 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
