Jordan

Legal market overview

A country traditionally reliant on the importation of energy from its resources-rich neighbours, Jordan has in recent years sought to improve its renewable energy infrastructure as a means of alleviating its dependence on foreign energy and meeting its increasing consumption needs. A significant number of solar power plants and wind farms are in the process of being designed, financed and constructed; the aim is for 10% of the country’s electricity to be obtained through renewable sources by 2020. A new LNG terminal in Aqaba is also being developed.

Domestic law firms Ali Sharif Zu’bi Advocates & Legal Consultants, International Business Legal Associates (IBLAW) and Khalifeh & Partners Lawyers remain at the forefront of the legal market, while international tie-ups Sanad Law Group in association with Eversheds KSLG and Safwan Moubaydeen Law Firm in association with Dentons also attract notable instructions in the country and the wider region.
