We opened our office in Abu Dhabi in 2009. Having a presence in the strategically important United Arab Emirates affirms Baker & McKenzie’s commitment to the Gulf and broader Middle East.
We have been active in the Gulf for more than three decades. With offices in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Doha and Abu Dhabi, we have a substantial presence in the region and sophisticated knowledge of local rules and business practices.
Our Gulf practice operates in a seamless manner, removing the usual logistical issues that occur between international and local counsel. Our ability to deploy an integrated team means higher efficiencies, lower costs and a higher level of service overall. Unlike most law firms, our strategic location in the region and extensive global resources across over 40 countries enable us to advise clients on a wide range of international and domestic matters. We can handle all aspects of our transactions and work with both English and Arabic documentation. Our Gulf practice has English and Middle Eastern qualified lawyers and fluent Arabic speakers.
