Charles Russell Speechlys has been operating in the Middle East region for many years.
Our clients include government ministries, sovereign wealth funds, regulators, local companies and organisations, and international businesses with a presence in the region.
Bahrain is the ‘hub’ for our activities throughout the Middle East and North Africa region. The Manama office opened in 2006 and we have since grown to become one of the largest international law firms in the Kingdom. We are located in the iconic Bahrain World Trade Centre from where we offer advice on banking (including Islamic finance), corporate and commercial matters, litigation and dispute resolution, real estate and construction, as well as providing advice to private individuals.
As a result of client demand we opened a second middle eastern office in Qatar in September 2013. The Doha team also provides advice to private individuals, particularly on family matters.
In August 2017 we opened our third middle eastern office in Dubai, focussed on International Arbitration, Arabic Litigation and Real Estate.
Our offices across all three locations are permanently staffed by lawyers with both international and local experience and who are actively involved in the wider Middle East business community.
