Legal market overview

Political instability in the region continues to inhibit the Lebanese economy, with corporate and commercial work suffering the most. Bucking the trend, however, TMT is a growing industry alongside banking, private equity and particularly the real estate sector. The anticipated bounce from the discovery of oil and gas reserves has been set back by postponements of the first licensing round for exploration.

The small but competitive legal market in Lebanon is dominated by domestic firms such as: Abou Jaoude & Associates Law Firm; Abouhamad, Merheb, Chamoun, Chedid; Abousleiman & Partners; Airut Law Offices; and Badri and Salim El Meouchi Law Firm. El-Khoury & Partners Legal Counsel ceased its association with Squire Sanders after the latter’s merger to create Squire Patton Boggs.
