The firm is active in the field of constitutional law. The local department, headed by Adel Abdulhadi, has submitted many challenges before the Kuwait constitutional court seeking to revoke various laws deemed unconstitutional, being in contradiction with the principles of Kuwait constitution, rules of international law and terms of treaties signed by Kuwait.
