The firm

The Law Offices of Sheikh Tariq Abdullah are the oldest and the most respected law offices in the Arabian Sub-Peninsular. Founded in Aden and operating now from all major cities in the Republic of Yemen the firm is by far the most prominent and well known law firm in the country. As Aden grew and changed its status to a Crown Colony in 1935, and thereafter achieved independence in 1967 along with the Aden Protectorates and became the Republic of South Yemen, through to the unity of South Yemen and the Yemen Arab Republic in 1990 to form the Republic of Yemen, the office has grown in strength and experience.

Yemen, among one of the newest developing countries in the world, is a complex society, and its complex laws often have uncertainties which are inadequate to satisfy the needs of the international business community. Though reforms are occurring slowly the Law Offices of Sheikh Tariq Abdullah, with its international experience and expertise, not only clarify and interpret these laws for clients but also provide practical, workable legal solutions to address the grey areas in the Yemeni laws, in accordance with our clients' needs. The firm combines this legal expertise with an outstanding reputation, knowledge and confidence which the Firm holds with local businesses and merchants.

The Law Offices of Sheikh Tariq Abdullah are frequently appointed by international law firms and offices based in London, the USA and Europe, as well as international orginisations.

The firm is ranked as a band one law firm by Chambers Global and are the honorary legal advisors of the British Embassy as well as a number of other embassies in Yemen.
