Al Tamimi & Co with Nord Anglia Education in its Jordan expansion

Nord Anglia Education, a premium international schools organization, has further expanded its presence in the Middle East with the joining of Amman Academy to its family of schools. 

Amman Academy, a private co-educational, bilingual day school in Amman, Jordan, becoming part of Nord Anglia’s network of schools shows the growing appetite for leading education providers to participate in the buoyant education sector in the region. 

Founded in 1991, Amman Academy is Nord Anglia’s first school in Jordan and its sixth school in the Middle East. Globally, Nord Anglia now operates 81 schools across 32 countries. 

Al Tamimi & Company has advised Nord Anglia Education in this transaction. The team was led by partner Richard Catling (corporate, m&a, pictured left) and head of the Jordan office Khaled Saqqaf (corporate, m&a, pictured right) and further included senior associate Hamzah Abu Hassan (corporate, commercial), associate Muhammad Mustafa Khalid (corporate, commercial), Nadeed Haddadin, trainee solicitors Thamer Shomar and Sadi El Tamimi
