Doha has one of the world's highest GDPs and the third highest gas reserves. Since Clyde & Co’s first office in the Middle East opened in 1989, today we are one of the largest international law firms in the GCC with around 170 legal staff operating across offices in Doha in Qatar; Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the UAE, Tripoli in Libya; and via an associated office in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Through this depth of experience, our Doha office has the cultural understanding to operate effectively and appropriately in the region.
The Doha office is known for its well-established corporate team with experience spanning through core areas including joint ventures, corporate establishments, franchising and regulatory matters. Widely acknowledged, it has solid expertise in advising big names in insurance, media and telecoms, as well as a highly regarded construction practice.
Its busy disputes group has built up a formidable strength of experience in the construction and insurance sectors, and is particularly active in international arbitration, advising on high-profile disputes arising from local projects.
