Editorial

Legal market overview

With oil prices continuing to decline, the Kuwaiti government has made moves towards diversifying the economy and is promoting foreign investment into the country. Investment into the oil and gas sector continues, but there has also been an increased focus on privatisation across a range of sectors, as well as a growing interest in PPP projects and public sector infrastructure developments, which form part of the Kuwait National Development Plan for 2035.

Local firms ASAR - Al Ruwayeh & Partners and Al Markaz Law Firm are dominant players within the Kuwaiti legal market, although stiff competition is provided by international firms Al Tamimi & Company and DLA Piper Kuwait in Association with (NEN) Al-Wagayan, Al Awadhi and Al-Saif.
