Legal market overview

Qatar is facing some interesting challenges and opportunities, particularly as the country works towards its Qatar National Vision 2030. With significant activity in prospect in the run-up to the FIFA 2022 World Cup, the region continues to see a surge of foreign investment. PPP projects are set to continue to feature, as governments from the GCC region look to partner with private sector investors.

Simmons & Simmons Middle East LLP and Squire Patton Boggs are two international firms licensed to practise Qatari law. Latham & Watkins LLP closed its Qatar office; one of the key partners, Ahmad Anani, joined newly formed local firm Sharq Law Firm briefly, but left in August 2015 to practise on his own. Regional heavyweight Al Tamimi & Company in association with Advocate Mohammed Al Marri recruited Stephen Lansdown, who joined in October 2015 from Hill Dickinson LLP to head the firm’s Qatar office.
