Creative project financing. Highly structured transactions and commercial agreements. Developing the global Islamic finance market. Hogan Lovells is leading the way, advising clients on a range of market firsts.

Our commercially-focused team advises on transactions, projects, and disputes throughout the Middle East and North Africa. We’ve consulted for several regional governments on Islamic financings, successfully steered domestic and international M&A deals, and won precedent setting cases in the UAE courts. We draft and negotiate all types of commercial agreements, obtain licenses from Saudi regulators, and advise on IP matters. Our client base spans the energy, finance, construction, real estate, infrastructure, transport, education, consumer, and health care sectors.

From our hub in Dubai and our associated office in Riyadh with ZS&R Law Firm, we have developed a strong track record in Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey. We work closely with our global network to help you with cross-border transactions and disputes.
