Lebanon

Editorial

Legal market overview

The Syrian crisis has had spill-over effects which continue to inhibit the Lebanese economy, resulting in fewer new investments and less corporate activity, albeit the real estate and banking sectors continue to thrive. Government plans to permit oil and gas exploration had raised hopes of an economic boost, but that project is presently postponed. An increasing number of firms have been accessing Iraq’s Kurdistan region as a means of countering economic uncertainty domestically.

The legal landscape in Lebanon is dominated by local firms, in particular: Abou Jaoude & Associates Law Firm, Abouhamad, Merheb, Chamoun, Chedid, Abousleiman & Partners, Alem & Associates and Badri and Salim El Meouchi Law Firm.
