Linklaters obtains license to operate in Saudi Arabia 

International law firm Linklaters bolsters its global footprint with the expansion into Saudi Arabian Market. The firm has been granted a license by the Ministry of Justice of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to practice law from a newly established office in Riyadh. This development marks a significant milestone for the firm, as it expands its presence in the Middle East region, where it already has offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. 

The new office in Riyadh will be headed by three experienced Linklaters partners: Waleed Rasromani (pictured left), who specializes in corporate law, Omar El Sayed (pictured center), an expert in banking, and Amro Bakhaidar (pictured right), a specialist in equity capital markets and public M&A transactions in Saudi Arabia.  

Jonathan Fried, Linklaters Middle East Managing Partner said: 

“We would like to thank the Ministry of Justice of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for approving our licence application. The licence, combined with our decade-long experience, will allow us to continue to deploy our capabilities and expertise across multiple practice areas and sectors in support of our clients in the Kingdom. We would like to thank our clients, old and new, who continue to place their trust in us in relation to their most important matters.”   

With its new office in Riyadh, Linklaters is well positioned to provide its clients with the highest quality legal advice and support in one of the world’s fastest-growing economies.
