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 a regional specialist 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 is now the first foreign law firm to secure a branch licence in Malaysia.
Our KL office is particularly focused on providing international counsel support to major projects and cross border investments for ASEAN clients internationally, and in the ASEAN region, applying our international experience of projects of a similar nature to important in-country projects, with particular focus on energy, infrastructure and PPP projects.
In Jordan we have a strong association with Abdul Karim J Al Fauri and Associates and we have successfully advised over the last 15 years on some of Jordan’s largest projects: its recent LNG import project; the Arab Gas pipeline from Egypt; oil shale concessions including one with oil major Shell; and a mine-mouth oil shale-fired Independent Power Project.
In Saudi Arabia we have a presence on the ground through an exclusive co-operation arrangement with Prima Law & Consultations Office, headed by HH Dr Abdulrahman bin Saud Al-Kabier.
Our Middle East practice is acknowledged as one of the leading legal practices in the region. The expertise and experience of our lawyers and the overall breadth and depth of our Gulf practice is amply demonstrated by our substantial involvement (past and present) in some of the most significant, complex high profile and innovative projects and transactions in the region.
