Bahrain’s economy has been gaining momentum, driven by a booming real estate sector, most notably in the hospitality and tourism industry, which is attracting an influx of Saudi tourists. Despite political unrest, the country also remains attractive to investors who find it a much more flexible market in which to invest than some others in the region.
The government has placed a significant focus on healthcare, investing large amounts and offering a much higher standard compared to neighbouring countries.
New regulations and the wave of real estate development have been substantial drivers of work for law firms, while the banking and finance sector remains important.
The most notable development in an otherwise stable legal marked was regional powerhouse Al Tamimi & Company’s arrival with the opening of a new office in Manama in August 2014 in response to client demand.
