In 2009, the competent Qatari Court introduced the online case registration system, an electronic service to accelerate case filing and ease court fee payment procedures, the first in the Middle East. Our Law Firm, Jumah Nasser Al Kaabi Law Firm/ GLC was the first law firm in the country to register a case and make use of the e-filling system.
Below are newspaper publications made for the Firm as the first law firm to register case online:
- Peninsula newspaper, published 27 July 2009
- Al Watan newspaper published dated 26 July 2009
It is undeniable that the world is changing innovatively and that technology continues to evolve and develop. This is for the same reason that we at GLC, challenge ourselves to embrace the new technology and find ways to stay ahead of these new advancements.
In mid-2017, GLC Management has invested and launched a password-protected Law Office Management System that allows both Law firm staff (lawyers and legal support staffs) and external clients to access their case, files, and updates through a particular exclusive website. This software system manages and automates the firm’s business process. The system aimed to improve the efficiency and organization of the firm’s office workloads such as that of electronic filing, document management, and interactive communication with clients.
On top of that, our lawyers and court representatives were given not only with the technical know-how of the office management system but were also provided with specific technology tools such as iPads / smartphones to be able to utilize optimal workflow and work more efficiently thus, resulting to exceptional legal services to clients.
Apart from the above-mentioned, GLC opens its doors to social media platforms, thus, the birth of our social media accounts @GLC_LawFirm on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. Our social media accounts cater to techno & internet-savvy individuals and companies who sought legal updates through the evolving internet world.
GLC at the same time never fails to recognize the value of information and knowledge imparted from conferences and seminars. Lawyers are frequently sent to seminars, conferences, and legal courses.
Our legal advisors actively participate in state and international law firm organizations and GLC continuously broadens association with the business of the same field.
GLC has been recognized as one of the leading law firms in Qatar and has been for years the affiliate Partner of the international law firm, Dentons & Co.
In October 2017, GLC partnered with The Legal 500 was able to successfully host a roundtable discussion whose primary goal is to bring together Qatar based businesses and lawyers to discuss a number of issues concerning the challenges faced after the imposed sanctions of neighbouring countries to Qatar.
On 30 September 2017, our Managing Partner, Mr. Jumah Nasser Al Kaabi was elected as the Board of Director for Qatari Lawyers.
Our Law Firm has been consistently a recommended law firm from both the prestigious The Legal 500 and the German Middle East Lawyers Association (GERMELA).
