Hassan Radhi & Associates
BUILDING 361, ROAD 1705, BLOCK 317

The firm: Hassan Radhi & Associates is a distinguished law firm that was established in 1974 by Dr Hassan Ali Radhi. Originally known as ‘Hassan Radhi Law Office – Attorneys and Legal Consultants,’ the firm started with Dr Hassan Radhi as the sole advocate. Initially focused on local legal matters, the firm quickly recognized the need to venture into international territories in order to broaden its professional and geographic horizons.

As the firm’s client base grew rapidly, an opportunity arose to leverage the expertise of renowned international law firms operating in Bahrain. Consequently, Hassan Radhi Law Office formed an association with the reputable U.S. legal firm, Coudert Brothers, establishing an international business entity named ‘Coudert Brothers in Association with Hassan Radhi.’ Specializing in multi-jurisdictional business activities, particularly in the areas of commercial law, banking, and insurance, the firm thrived during the eight-year collaboration.

Benefiting from its extensive experience in international business, the firm expanded its operations and focused on commercial law, with a particular emphasis on banking and insurance. Conducting business primarily in English, the firm became a leader in these fields. With a relentless commitment to growth and development, Hassan Radhi Law Office rapidly ascended to the pinnacle of Bahrain’s legal landscape, earning a reputation as one of the most reputable and leading law firms in the Gulf region.

Today, Hassan Radhi & Associates continues to deliver exceptional legal services, combining a wealth of expertise in international business law with a deep understanding of commercial laws.
