Al Tamimi launches in Kuwait

The Middle Eastern firm launched its new office after acquiring two partner Kuwaiti practice The Dawliya Law Firm through its joint venture with local lawyer Yaqoub Al Munayae. The new office will be Al Tamimi’s tenth in the Middle East.

Al Tamimi founding and senior partner Essam Al Tamimi said: “The decision to open the new office is in direct response to client requirements for an Arab firm with global connections to offer local, regional and international legal services in Kuwait.”

In June this year The Lawyer reported on Saleh leaving DLA Piper to be replaced by Kuwaiti lawyer Abdulaziz Al Yaqout who now leads the firm’s Kuwait office (see story).

Saleh’s client base includes National Bank of Kuwait, NBK Capital and The Bank of Kuwait & the Middle East.

Saleh launched DLA’s office in the country in October last year through a joint venture with Al Wagayan Al Awadhi & Al Saif.
