Our lawyers have vast experience helping clients interact with the Ministry of Industry and Commerce State, the Qatar Financial Center, Qatar Science and Technology Park, the Ministry of Labor and other ministries and agencies. Our lawyers have advised clients on the entire corporate lifecycle, including entity formation and dissolution, labor law issues, commercial transactions, corporate governance, procurement and tender requirements, privacy issues, anti-bribery laws. 

Our attorneys have also represented leading Qatari government institutions and agencies, including ictQtar, a subsidiary of Ministry of Telecommunications; Hassad Food, a subsidiary of Qatar Investment Authority; and Qatar Foundation, as well as international clients doing business in Qatar and across the Middle East.
