Al Tamimi & Co is embarking on a dual expansion plan by extending its reach from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) into both Iraq and Qatar.
The firm, made up of a mixture of both local and UK-qualified lawyers, has opened a new office in Doha, Qatar, initially staffing it with three assistants. Al Tamimi is one of a growing number of firms setting up in the region, which has the world’s largest liquefied natural gas reserves.
Eversheds established an agreement of cooperation with Doha-based Al-Jufairi in February 2003, while recently Richards Butler established a formal association with Qatar practice Hassan A Alkhater.
At the same time, Al Tamimi has also formed ties with around four Baghdad-based lawyers who, the firm says, cannot be named for security reasons.
The firm, founded in 1989 and led by former Clifford Chance lawyer Essam Al Tamimi, is spread across Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Dubai Internet City – a ‘free trade zone’ in the region for technology and media-focused businesses – and Sharjah.
