Middle East

Howard Kennedy has many years' experience working with and advising clients from the Middle East with a focus on Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

"International Middle East.

Advising clients in the Middle East for over 35 years, we have extensive experience acting for high-net-worth individuals, government organisations, and international and regional owner-managed businesses.

We advise Middle Eastern individual entrepreneurs and corporate clients looking to do business internationally. We in turn work with local advisers to assist clients wishing to do business in the region.

In the UK, we regularly advise Middle East investors on all aspects of real estate, hotels and leisure, finance, tax, succession and estate planning issues, dispute resolution and arbitration cases, corporate transactions, and commercial contracts.

We also specialise in International Construction projects and disputes and have particular expertise in the FIDIC forms of contract. 

Our membership of our legal networks and relationships with other firms ensures we can offer our clients significant international reach.

Our lawyers regularly visit the region to see clients and contacts, maintaining and refreshing these important relationships.
