Our lawyer’s immense knowledge of local and international regulations, policies, procedures, and customs shapes our Regulatory and Government Relations practice. Our many years of helping clients grow their businesses through our guidance on regulatory and compliance issues have enabled us to build a network of key relationships in the US and the Middle East. We fully appreciate the importance of understanding the cultural implications of conducting your business and incorporating that into our guidance.
Our clients include local businesses, government entities, and multinational companies looking to establish or expand their presence in the Middle Eastern region. We have a long track record of successfully working with government entities on regulatory matters, such as drafting and implementing local rules and regulations and working with contractors to help them navigate the laws and special procurement rules tied to providing goods and services to federal governments. Clients turn to us to conduct training on compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Anti-Bribery Act, and other international compliance matters.
Our real-world, personal relationships with officials from key government entities developed throughout our lawyers’ careers are part of the added value included in our services. Our experience includes working with entities including the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA), the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), the Saudi Telecom Company (STC), the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture (MEWA), the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (MHRSD), the Ministry of Housing Building Technology Stimulus (HBTS) and the New and Renewable Energy Authority of Egypt, among many others.
