Legal market overview
Qatar’s successful bid for the 2022 World Cup has led to an increased focus on domestic infrastructure mandates, and there is also a significant increase in the number of disputes relating to the event. Meanwhile, the country’s oil and gas surplus continues to fund a steady flow of outbound investments.
Various leading firms have an office locally, and this number is expected to rise. Following its decision to open an office in Doha, Allen & Overy LLP continues to go from strength to strength in the region, and Latham & Watkins LLP is another heavyweight presence. On the domestic side, the leading firms are Arab Law Bureau, Al Tamimi & Company in association with Al Marri, Hassan A Alkhater Law Office, and Law Offices of Gebran Majdalany.
