Q2 2016 Middle East cross-border deal-making steady despite global decline
The underlying economic fundamentals, such as anticipated GDP growth in the UAE and Saudi Arabia, continue to draw investors to the region.


As market leaders in project finance and construction law, we advise clients on some of the most significant infrastructure transactions in the local market. Our accomplishments include representing Saudi Binladin Group Company Limited on US$1.9 billion joint venture to modernise roads in preparation for Qatar hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2022, and advising developers on corporate and construction issues relating to the Doha Metro Project — the world’s most advanced rail transit system.

Serving clients in the MENA region for over 35 years and in Qatar for more than a decade, Baker & McKenzie understands the impact of economic and social transition on business, and can help navigate the changing legal and commercial landscape in the country and the rest of the region. The quality of our work is reflected in the number of leading Qatari businesses, multinationals and financial institutions that seek our advice on complex cross-border matters.

Our lawyers work closely with colleagues in our Gulf offices to help clients navigate the region’s regulatory environment and achieve their global objectives.
