Essa Mohammed Al Sulaiti, Chairman
What do you see as the main points that differentiate Essa Al Sulaiti Law Firm from your competitors?
Essa Al Sulaiti Law Firm chooses its core values and do them better than anyone. We put our clients first. Always. For our team and myself this does not only mean using the generic standard legal procedure most use. It means using the best methods of communicating and making our client feel more at ease, whilst allowing our legal team to obtain the best possible outcome for our clients. When our client chooses us and gives us the opportunity to provide them with any sort of legal assistance, they know they are receiving the best possible care.
I have tried my best to make ESLF a diverse one, at the same time, we do have a specialty. Our clients value the fact that we are specialized in Corporate, Commercial & Construction.
ESLF, always aimed to be innovative, a firm that keeps on pursing greater lengths to provide clients with the best possible outcome. We do not sit back and enjoy the ride, but move onto the next best thing, always trying to figure out what the law has in-store for us before our competitors. We have grown our legal services in line of what the up and coming market has been indirectly requesting.
Lastly, I have always wanted my Firm to be one of patience, which may indirectly be seen as the opposite of innovative, however I believe that working too fast will put our clients at risk and not represent them as well as they should have been. We maintain the integrity of each client and therefore, in return we receive their trust and unyielding loyalty.
Which practices do you see growing in the next 12 months? What are the drivers behind that?
I believe the main practices that will grow over the next 12 months will be technology, due to the foundation of Qatar Science & Technology Park, which was created for international technology companies in Qatar, and acts as an incubator of start-up technology businesses. Also the fact that the Covid-19 pandemic struck the world, also further sped up the use of technology in Qatar, in order for work to keep on progressing. The next practice that will grow is Maritime Shipping, due to the Hamad Port, which happens to be Qatar’s main seaport, located south of Doha in the Umm Al-Houl area. It is capable of handling up to 7.8 million tonnes of products annually. Lastly, due to the World Cup 2022, which will be hosted in Qatar, the rise in hospitality, commercial properties and hotels shall be begin, due to the vast amounts of individuals who will seek to come and watch the games live in Qatar. Luckily, it is what we are specialized in and we imminently wait to provide what we can to all individuals and companies who require Legal Services in such practices.
What’s the main change you’ve made in the firm that will benefit clients?
I have put ESLF on track to implement the ISO 9001 for Quality Management System as well as ISO / IEC 27001; this will help keep my clients confident of our abilities to provide top-tier services. I have also invested in a diverse legal team, from all ethnical backgrounds. We currently have Spanish, Portuguese, French, Greek, Italian, Urdu, Arabic, English native speaks, which accommodates and benefits all international and local clients. I have invested time in conducting Business Collaborations with property developers, financial auditors, construction and engineering experts and third party funders. Third party funders support our clients, that are in financial difficulties to help them fund their litigation or arbitration process. Construction experts issue technical reports to support our clients with their ongoing cases/disputes and the financial auditors help our clients with any financial disputes they may be having. Property developer, help our clients invest and obtain the best possible land for the amount of capital they are willing to invest. Some of the business collaborations I have implemented partner us up with project developers, who give our clients quick and swift advice as to the newest hottest piece of real estate in Doha, which will be or become available.
Is technology changing the way you interact with your clients, and the services you can provide them?
Of course, since the COVID-19 Pandemic hit, we use a variety of technological equipment in order to liaise and/or educate Clients and/or potential Clients.
Firstly, we use a variety of technological portals to allow us to communicate and liaise with our clients. Some of which, but not limited to are Teams, WebEx, Skype, Our Client Portal, which eases access for clients, which in turn makes things easier when we need to exchange documents. With technology, we have a faster method of communication and in term collaborations with other law firms across the globe to support clients that have business international etc. This is all attributed to our new client portal system, which is a next generation technology changer.
We have had many Webinars online, with a Q&A, where my employees conducted a presentation regarding the Labour Law of Qatar. The audience would write their question down on the Zoom Q&A and my employees would later proceed to answer them. Furthermore, we are receiving & conducting meetings via zoom and teleconferences due to the Pandemic. Considering this, it is safe to say that we can provide services to Our Clients, without them ever having to set foot in the office if that is what they wish. However, it is my personal view that it is best to meet at least once in person, because the emotional and human contact can speak a lot louder than electronic words. Nevertheless, this is just my humble opinion.
Can you give us a practical example of how you have helped a client to add value to their business?
We have a variety of practical examples we can use, but the most notable one is that fact that ESLF has managed to obtain a 100% ownership Company for a Foreign Company under the Foreign Investment Law. ESLF also performs legal audits for high profile companies, analysing risks in every deals transaction. This also including providing legal solutions, which reduces these risks and losses, which in term helps the growth of the companies in the long-run providing great longevity.
Lastly, we have managed to secure certain projects for Our Client, which ended up yielding a tremendous amount of profit.
Are clients looking for stability and strategic direction from their law firms – where do you see the firm in three years’ time?
In my opinion yes, they are indeed looking for stability and strategic direction. They come to us because they are confident in our ability to provide the best possible solutions to their problems and they would like a professional input on how to grow their business in a legal manner and accordingly the best strategy to do so. It is not always litigation and court cases, ESLF is much more than that, because we aim to not only get our clients out of jams, but also additionally expand their businesses and horizons and see them prosper. My dream is for my clients to have unrelenting trust ESLF and in-turn ESLF to provide impeccable services, which none can rival. I know that this is very optimistic, but I have been taught that by working hard and being honest, you can travel unmeasurable amount of distances, professionally speaking. It is also important to note that across the globe lead legal experts normally get back to us, because they value our opinion and legal advice.
In 3 years, I would like to think that we would have accelerated our digitization by implementing new technology. We aim to be a fully digitalized law firm. We would have evolved our customer relationship and services largely. I would like to think that this pandemic has made us adapt and become easily available, even at the sanctuary of our own home. I aim to build an ever-stronger trust with my clientele and have an increase of work and additional employees.
