We are delighted that our Bahrain team has been announced as the winner of the Bahrain Law Firm of the Year Award at The Oath Legal Magazine’s prestigious 2018 Middle East Legal Awards. The Award was presented during the annual ceremony at The Oath’s 2018 Middle East Legal Awards Gala held on 5th December 2018 at the Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Resort & Marina.
The awards are presented annually to law firms, general counsel and in-house teams that have demonstrated outstanding contributions to the legal sector and excellence in client service. Our Bahrain team has demonstrated a significant commitment to the legal and business community that we serve in Bahrain. In particular, the firm is recognized for developing a unique, innovative programme to train local Bahraini law graduates and help them to dual qualify as English solicitors. To date, we have helped 8 Bahraini qualified lawyers become dual qualified English solicitors and go on to practice in our Bahrain and London offices.
After accepting the award on behalf of the firm, Patrick Gearon, Head of Middle East said: “We are delighted to have been recognised by The Oath for the outstanding work of our Bahrain office. Receiving this award also inspires us to continue developing our unique dual qualification programme in Bahrain, and giving back to the local community through valuable legal education and job training. This comes on the cusp of our 12 year anniversary in Bahrain, and is testament to our commitment to the country. We look forward to continuing to grow our practice and our team in Bahrain.”
