At ASAR, we encourage diversity and inclusion within our business culture as we believe it supports our employees professional and personal growth. We pride ourselves in, across all levels within the firm, promoting gender equality, and in particular, empowering our female lawyers and staff to accomplish their professional goals. Our firm is comprised of 73 employees from 19 different countries, of which 23 per cent. are female. We have acclaimed our award-winning reputation over the years by innovating and providing the highest level of counsel across an extensive list of practices areas to support our clients with their most challenging legal matters. While we’ve managed to achieve many milestones throughout our 45 years in the MENA region, our corporate social responsibility values have always been at the heart of everything we do. We have also recently joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative, which have acknowledged us as the first law firm in Kuwait to become a member, and will be working towards incorporating more sustainable and responsible business practices within the business.
