The firm’s lawyers render consultation services on every facet of law related to business in Bahrain. The two major languages of consultation are Arabic and English. The official language of Bahrain is Arabic and the presence of bi-lingual Arabic/English lawyers enhances the firm’s values besides specialised English and Arabic lawyers. The lawyers have been educated at prestigious universities from Bahrain, United Kingdom, France, Canada, Egypt, Kuwait, Morocco, Jordan and Bangladesh.
International clients would like to see the documents drafted in English. Any document that needs to be notarised in Bahrain must be in Arabic. The firm excels in preparation of bilingual Arabic/English contracts in order to cater to both needs. The firm regularly drafts and reviews contracts for clients in English, Arabic and bilingual.
The firm regularly advises clients on company formation and assists the clients in company formation-joint stock company, limited liability company, single person company-and assumes the entire tasks until the commercial registration number is obtained. In addition, the firm’s lawyers act as proxies in general assembly meetings-ordinary and extraordinary-and thus give flexibility to international clients who are relieved of their duties to do mandatory exercise.
