We provide highly informed, customized legal and policy services for leading businesses, corporations, family conglomerates, high-net worth individuals, governments, public entities, and non-governmental organisations. As the only legal and policy provider of our kind, we were established pursuant to a license granted by an order of the Emir of Qatar, His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani.
Our structure focuses on the interests and goals of our client, rather than accumulation of billable hours. As a result, our client list does not exceed 100 entities and institutions at any given time, especially as most of our transactions involve ‘signature’ projects.
In addition to our core professionals, we have an expansive group of International Experts – specialist advisors drawn from numerous jurisdictions, and fields of expertise, including expert practitioners, former government officials, and industry leaders.
We match the skills and experience of our core professionals and International Experts to provide personalized services that match our clients’ requirements.
The services we provide are enhanced further by the standing of our International Advisory Council comprised of world renowned legal practitioners, jurists, academics, and policy-makers who provide expert guidance and support to the Institution. Council members include Prince Al Hassan bin Talal, the former Crown Prince of Jordan, Lord Woolf of Barnes, the former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, Sheikh Ahmed Zaki Yamani, former Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources of Saudi Arabia, and Stanley Hoffman, Paul and Catherine Buttenweiser Professor at Harvard Law School.
