Once again, IFLR1000 has ranked Alex Saleh, Managing Partner of GLA & Company, as “Market Leader” for both the jurisdictions of the State of Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates.  This is the top title that IFLR1000 bestows upon practicing lawyers in their respective countries.  In Kuwait, Alex is in special company as only 1 out of 4 leaders in Kuwait where he shares this title with three other heavyweights.  In the UAE, this is Alex’s first ranking in that jurisdiction and shares the top title with a select few well-known lawyers there.  What is more impressive is that Alex is only 1 of 2 Market Leaders in the UAE that are not partners in an international English or US law firm.  Alex said that this ranking reflects the hard work of all of the GLA & Company’s offices especially the Kuwait and UAE team members.

IFLR1000 has a four tier system with the first being “Rising Star”, then “Notable Practitioner” followed by “Highly Regarded” and finally, their top title “Market Leader”.  It is a respected ranking system relied upon by law firms and in-house legal departments globally.  For more information, please see the following link.
