THE rapid growth of Saudi Arabia’s economy and the diverse activities carried out by both the government and the private sector have necessitated the establishment of specialised competent legal firms in Saudi Arabia.

With more and more experienced professionals joining the specialised legal firms in Saudi Arabia, the awareness and importance of legal services has also increased in the kingdom.

“Legal services provide better guidance and control in all commercial activities carried by these sectors whether inside or outside Saudi Arabia,” says Dr Bader Al Busaies, attorney at law and managing partner, Fahad Al Suwaiket and Bader Al Busaies Company.

Cashing in on the situation, Fahad Al Suwaiket and Bader Al Busaies Company (Al Suwaiket and Al Busaies) was established as the first legal company to provide its services in Al Khobar, Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. According to Dr Al Busaies, the firm commenced legal services from the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia as it is considered to be the backbone of the world’s oil production.

“Our practice provides advice on all corporate and regulatory matters affecting the petroleum and energy sector including trade, privatisation, mergers and acquisitions, helping oil and gas companies set up businesses, environmental regulation, litigation and arbitration in both domestic and international markets,” says Dr Al Busaies.

The firm’s energy section advises its clients on various legal issues related to electricity and water, project development and finance, construction, engineering contracts, environment and other regulations. Furthermore, Al Suwaiket and Al Busaies represents its clients continuously for the entire period of the litigation.

The firm also covers maritime sector in Saudi Arabia including vessel registration, claims and collision, and focuses on providing practical solutions to ensure clients’ best economic interest.

The firm, with the help of qualified and highly experienced lawyers, uses modern methods and professional legal services to handle the complete range of legal services relating to the economic, commercial, and civil activities. All services in the important areas of law and shariah are provided to the clients in all important sectors like oil and gas, corporate, finance and investment, contracts, information technology, intellectual property, taxation, insurance, privatisation, environmental concerns, maritime, real estate. In addition, the company’s services covers areas of specialisation such as liquidation, arbitration and litigation.

“Al Suwaiket and Al Busaies offers its clients best value for money by providing sound legal services and keeping and serving the client interests,” adds Dr Al Busaies.

In order to expand its legal services internationally and to provide its clients professional legal services, the firm has associated itself with Williams Mullen, a reputed international law firm based in Washington DC. Apart from having several offices spread across the US, it also has an office in London, UK which was incorporated in 1909.
