Legal market overview

Jordan’s lack of natural resources means it relies heavily on oil-rich neighbours for imported oil and gas. The government’s ambitious renewable energy plans aim to alleviate the country’s dependence on energy imports by unlocking its solar and wind potential. Numerous renewable energy projects are under way, and law firms with traditional strength in the development and financing of power and energy projects have felt the benefit of this, as bidders and sponsors seek out legal counsel in the country.

Political turmoil in the region continues to take its toll on Jordan, which is estimated to host around 650,000 Syrian refugees. Poverty and unemployment rates are high, though its comparatively free market economy has seen growth for a number of years.

In terms of the legal market, domestic firms Ali Sharif Zu'bi Advocates & Legal Consultants, International Business Legal Associates (IBLAW) and Khalifeh & Partners Lawyers remain dominant. Two international tie-ups in the country are Sanad Law Group and Safwan Moubaydeen Law Firm in association with Dentons, which draw on broad office networks to serve international clients in cross-border transactions.
