Al-Hamad Legal Group's highly skilled staff of attorneys has experience in a wide variety of sectors and areas of practice.
Our attorneys are heavily experienced in the following areas:
The Firm provides a unique combination of cross-border corporate finance and cross-border mergers and acquisitions practices. In an increasingly fast-paced transactional environment, our combined experience in these areas affords our clients the benefit of cutting-edge and efficient multi-jurisdictional transaction structuring and implementation.
The Firm has also been involved in significant international cross-border ventures, including a series of joint venture agreements for various companies in many industries.
We recognize the importance of entrepreneurship in the region. We have adopted a unique initiative aimed at identifying, supporting and nurturing the young and rapidly growing entrepreneurship community.
Start-ups are being established at record paces. Unfortunately, many of the individuals behind these startups are first-time business owners, and, therefore do not have the experience to make informed decisions. In addition to being legal counselors, we also have a duty to provide practical advice aimed at addressing issues that matter most to our clients. Our objective is not only to advise the entrepreneurship community, but also to educate them. In this regard, we offer our extended hand of support and have adopted the long-term objective of helping develop our relationship alongside the development of our clients’ businesses.
Our collective knowledge of “the way the government works” derives from the skill and experiences of our attorneys and legal consultants. Our attorneys work with officials and representatives at all levels of the government to develop innovative regulatory approaches, to persuade agencies to amend or re-interpret regulations, or to convince courts to interpret laws in the way we believe the legislators intended the rules to be implemented.
Our understanding of the complexities of local government bodies, rulemaking processes and regulatory frameworks is augmented by knowledge of specific industry sectors those agencies regulate, enabling us to provide expert advice on the impact of proposed or pending internal policy changes, potential impact of those changes and how best to plan for pending regulatory changes well in advance of their realization.
As Kuwait (and much of the GCC) does not have developed intellectual property laws (e.g., patent laws), there is an additional responsibility on us to protect our Clients' interest. We understand that in the age of intangible and digital assets, our Clients’ need to protect their intellectual property has become more vital than ever before.
Often, intellectual property issues are not raised or addressed in a vacuum—they transcend other practice areas such as M&A and general Corporate and Commercial Laws. Our attorneys and legal consultants are adept at handling intellectual property matters embedded in layers of complex legal issues.
Maximizing the return on investment in capital intensive assets requires complex judgments about business needs, tax and accounting rules, and a variety of legal issues. Our extensive experience in aircraft, equipment and facility finance transactions provides our clients with the comfort and knowledge that our attorneys are able to help assist achieve their goals. One of the most recent deals undertaken was a USD200 million bridge financing deal—involving acquisition financing/asset-backed loans of two new aircrafts and engines.
The development and the implementation of PPP is intended to encourage private companies in Kuwait’s various major infrastructure and service development projects. Our team of experienced attorneys are able to advise on, and assist with, clients who may want to participate in these projects.
