Legal market overview

An air of optimism is perceptible as firms note that the lull in transactional activity which followed Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani’s decision to hand over power in June 2013 has eased. Initiatives such as Qatar National Vision 2030 and the FIFA 2022 World Cup are perceived to be likely drivers of future activity.

Transactional and contentious construction work remains a key focus area for law firms, while state-owned energy companies and investment firms also supply a steady flow of instructions throughout the market.

Numerous international law firms compete alongside local competitors. Notably, Simmons & Simmons Middle East LLP and Squire Patton Boggs are licensed to practise Qatari law. Regional powerhouse Al Tamimi & Company in association with Al Marri has continued to expand its comprehensive Qatar offering.
