Welcome to GLA & Company.  In the State of Kuwait, GLA & Company operates through a joint venture with Nader Al Awadhi, who is a Kuwaiti national and a registered licensed lawyer with full rights of audience in all Kuwaiti courts.  The Kuwait office is one of the largest law firms in the State of Kuwait with over 25 lawyers and legal consultants providing services in all the main practice areas of GLA.

What sets the Kuwait office of GLA aside from other law firms here is the combination of local and expat lawyers.  Because a majority of the team are actually Kuwaiti nationals, clients find that GLA are able to accomplish so much more at the courts and regulatory levels compared to other law firms that are predominantly expat-based.  In addition, since GLA also retains a strong transactional practice headed by 25 year veteran Alex Saleh, the Managing Partner, GLA still retains the top talent in country for complicated and complex corporate and/or banking deals.  The results are quite impressive as one can see by reviewing testimonials from clients in IFLR, Chambers and Legal 500.

Finally, because the Kuwait office is integrated seamlessly with the other GLA offices throughout the Middle East, GLA Kuwait is able to perform significantly better at addressing regional issues brought by international and regional clients that are looking for holistic solutions across the GCC and greater MENA region.

Welcome to GLA & Company.  In the United Arab Emirates, GLA & Company operates through a joint venture with Mohammad Alsaadi who is a registered licensed lawyer with full rights of audience in all UAE courts.  The UAE office has over 10+ lawyers and legal consultants.

While the UAE office is still at the “boutique” level in terms of size, it is very different from other “boutique” law firms in the UAE in the sense that we have both full rights of audience in UAE Courts and, at the same time, well-developed corporate and banking practice teams headed up by veteran Yousef Alamly, our Dubai-based corporate partner, who has many years experience in this field in the UAE having worked on numerous high-profile M&A, IPO and general corporate and commercial transactions.  

Finally, because the UAE office is integrated seamlessly with the other GLA offices throughout the Middle East, GLA Dubai is able to perform significantly better at addressing regional issues brought by international and regional clients that are looking for holistic solutions across the GCC and greater MENA region.
