Sidley’s growing practice in the Middle East includes representing local clients who invest around the world, as well as international clients conducting business in the region. Our work spans high-profile transactional, regulatory, and cross-border dispute matters. Drawing on the firm’s multidisciplinary global resources, our Middle East team represents clients including sovereign wealth funds, family offices, private equity funds, and corporations. Our work in the region extends to each Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) country, as well as to virtually every country across the broader Middle East region. As such, our team of lawyers, several of whom are Arabic speakers, are well-versed in local business practices and culture.
