Al Tamimi & Company relocates to new premises in the Eastern Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (“KSA”), as part of their KSA growth plans. The move will see the firm in Al Khobar shift to a bigger office space in order to accommodate their growing team. The office in Abdulhadi Al Hugayet Tower is located in the busy commercial centre in the city of Al Khobar.
The growth of the firm’s team in Al Khobar shows its continued commitment to The Kingdom and is testament to a buoyant KSA market.
Commenting on the move, Samer Qudah (pictured left), Managing Partner , Al Tamimi & Company said:
“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is vital to our growth plans. This move not only reinforces our ambition to be a regional leader, but it reaffirms our commitment to investing in the Kingdom and playing our role in supporting the Saudi Vision 2030.
We want to ensure a first-class experience for our clients and colleagues across all the jurisdictions where we have offices, and this includes securing office space in the best office buildings. Along with this is the ESG standards we set for the firm, and this move will allow the firm to improve its environmental footprint and achieve its sustainability objectives in Al Khobar as well attract a more diverse workforce.”
Commenting on the move Grahame Nelson (pictured right), Partner and Head of Office – Al Khobar and the Head of Al Tamimi & Company’s Energy and Resources Sector, said:
“Building on the establishment of offices in Riyadh and Jeddah, we opened our office in Al Khobar in 2016. This was both a case of trade following the flag and the flag following trade. We already had a substantial client base in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia and we were keen to have a visible on-the-ground presence to better serve those clients. At the same time, we saw the move as strategically important as it enabled us to develop our mainstream corporate and litigation practices as well as new practice areas in Saudi Arabia’s energy and industrial heartland.
Since its opening, our Al Khobar office has expanded rapidly in step with the Government’s Vision 2030 social and economic programmes. However, it had been clear to us for some time that we were outgrowing the physical confines of our previous Al Khobar offices and that we needed to move to larger premises. The office move will also support our ambition to attract the up-and-coming legal talent in the country as well as our ambition to continue to provide training to young Saudi lawyers. With the space we have created, we will be able to realise this ambition.”
