Legal Market Overview
Like other countries in the region, Bahrain’s economy is connected to the changes in global crude oil prices. However, the impact on the island nation is less significant due to the country’s relatively diverse economy. Key industries responsible for large numbers of employment include aluminium, petrochemicals and food processing. The nation’s financial sector also plays a major role in the economy and in the broader region. Telecoms, transportation and tourism are other important sectors.
As for the legal market, international firms Baker & McKenzie Limited, Trowers & Hamlins LLP and Charles Russell Speechlys LLP are all based in Manama. Regional firm Al Tamimi & Company also has a strong presence in the market, and the key local firms include Zu’bi & Partners, Attorneys & Legal Consultants, Newton Legal, Hassan Radhi & Associates and Haya Rashed Al Khalifa Attorneys at Law & Legal Consultants.
