Our lawyers have a stand-out record of succeeding for our clients in the most sensitive and complex disputes and legal proceedings. Drawing on the expertise of lawyers with over 50 years of accumulated practice in litigation, arbitration and alternative dispute resolution mechanisms has allowed us to seamlessly handle large and complex cases.

II. Corporate and Business
Working alongside some of the most successful companies, our corporate lawyers have become known for breaking new ground and setting precedents. We cover all types of legal services throughout every stage of the corporate lifecycle from the birth of a company to mergers, acquisitions and restructuring to insolvency and related proceedings.
Combined with our transactional expertise, we also cover the full range of specialist areas including competition, employment and benefits, social responsibility and environmental matters, intellectual property rights and corporate governance, allowing us to ensure a level of service and quality that very few other firms can match.

III. Projects and Finance
We have built a projects department to meet the needs of Jordan's aim at rebuilding and developing its infrastructure in fields including transportation, energy, waste, aviation and telecommunication with lifespans reaching up to 35 years. The result is one of Jordan's most diverse and most complete project advisory teams.
We supplement all this by drawing on expertise from the firm's other specialist departments and our global network of connections. For these reasons, we have been continuously retained as lead counsel in projects by major governmental and quasi-governmental bodies for our in-depth experience in the worlds of privatisation and public-private partnerships and insightful perspectives on the market. Engagements in this field include:
IV. Commercial Transactions
With our diverse experience in the legal sector and our long-standing partnerships with clients, our team has acquired substantial insight into the broad areas of business, commerce and consumer transactions as well as the competitive pressures inherent within.
We understand that well-drafted and robust commercial contracts underpin well-managed and successful businesses. For this reason, our success as dealmakers rests on our ability to distill our extensive legal expertise and market knowledge into those underlying key issues and unforeseeable events to protect our clients' interests.
Our team advises many of the leading companies in an unusually broad range of agreements and a wide variety of consumer sectors. We are known for our specialist expertise in a number of areas, notably agency, distribution and franchising, manufacturing, logistics, technology transfer, media and joint-ventures, with relevant engagements including:
V. Banking & Debt Finance
Our team has considerable specialist knowledge in the banking and debt finance sector and has established local expertise in financial institutions and key emerging markets as well as the intricate legal framework that governs them.
Our diverse client base and experience in advising on corporate and project financing under Jordanian and English laws allows us to draw on a broad range of expertise to provide advice on matters relating to acquisition, leveraged, leasing and asset finance as well as commercial lending.
Our firm has gained extensive experience in the relatively niche Islamic finance sector through advising local and international clients on Islamic finance transactions such as ijarah, mosharakah and istisna’a, and by having a significant role in the drafting of Sukuk laws in Jordan and Bahrain.
VI. Legislative & Public Policy
Our deep bench and legal strength complement our reputation and relationships in Jordan, giving our clients a seat at the table and access to our powerful government network. Our lawyers regularly appear before all levels and branches of government and have gained extensive experience in both government and politics, giving our firm its strategic edge.
This in-depth familiarity with the inner workings of the executive and legislative processes and first-hand understanding of budget, tax, and fiscal policies gives us keen insight into how legislative and executive actions are formalised and taken.
For these reasons, our firm's services have been continuously sought after and put to use in legal reform and legislative drafting in both Jordan and Bahrain, including the following reform projects and legislative instruments :
