Trowers & Hamlins in Asia and the Middle East
The international practice of Trowers & Hamlins undertakes work in many jurisdictions, but is particularly closely associated with Asia and the Middle East.  In the Middle East we are considered to be regional specialists and we have broad geographical coverage and one of the largest, strongest and most experienced teams of lawyers.

Our connections with the Middle East date back to 1959. Trowers & Hamlins has long-established offices in Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Dubai, Oman and in early 2015 became the first foreign law firm to secure a branch office licence in Malaysia.

Our KL office is particularly focused on providing international counsel-level support to major projects, and cross border investments for ASEAN clients in the ASEAN region and internationally, as well as applying our international experience of projects of a similar nature to important in-country projects, with particular focus on energy, infrastructure and PPP projects. Our range of clients and connections, and their fields of activity, are significant and varied.  Our client base ranges from Government-linked companies, to infrastructure funds, developers, real estate companies, banks, contractors and engineers, the automotive industry, and sundry partners involved in international commercial activity and joint ventures.

Clients benefit from a high degree of partner involvement, quality control and accountability. Across the firm, technical expertise is matched by strength, in-depth knowledge and substantial back-up resources. There is a strong shared commitment to doing the job well and delivering consistently good service.
