BSA Ahmad Bin Hezeem & Associates LLP
We are a team of legal experts who fully understand all aspects of doing business in the Middle East. Our vision is to create a ‘trusted-adviser’ service of real, tangible value to you. We are therefore excited about the prospect of working with you and building a long-lasting relationship between us.
Many law firms can give you legal advice in the Middle East. However, very few have started out in Dubai and grown to encompass the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Lebanon, Iraq and France. So, what makes us different? Well, let’s just say: it’s not what we do but the way that we do it.
Of course, as a full-service law firm, we have a comprehensive knowledge of local laws and customs. Our people are fluent in a range of languages including Arabic, English and French. And we have access to the relevant local authorities and rights of audience before all the courts.
But it’s the way we interact with our clients that sets us apart from the crowd. Our modernized and progressive approach means we’ll talk to you in a straightforward manner and bring innovation to everything we do, from management information to case handling and billing.
We help people do business all over the world. It doesn’t matter what sector or jurisdiction you operate in. Or whether you’re a fledgling regional business or a multi-national corporate. With five offices in the Middle East, another in France and affiliates across Asia, Europe and the US, we can help you negotiate the maze of global regulations and ensure your interests are protected at all times.
