The firm is establishing itself in the capital Muscat. The office will be led by Ahmed Saleh, who was previously an associate at Dentons and legacy firm SNR Denton in Oman.
Saleh’s experience includes representing the Omani government on issues including the recent free trade agreement between Oman and the US, as well as acting for corporates on a variety of contentious and non-contentious issues.

The Oman launch follows Al Tamimi’s recent move into the Iraqi Kurdistan city of Erbil (9 October 2013).
