Lawyers | Saudi Arabia

What we do

Our recently established A&O associated office enables us to draw on the practice’s recognised expertise in Islamic finance, corporate transactional matters, cooperative insurance, capital markets and regulatory work.

Together we help a diverse mix of top domestic clients and large multinationals find solutions to their most challenging and critical transactions in Saudi Arabia.

The legal practice provides a comprehensive legal service to clients, advising large companies, banks and government entities on their commercial and financial activities. Our Riyadh office advises on all aspects of corporate, finance (including bank finance, debt capital markets and all types of Islamic financing), domestic and international real estate and Saudi regulatory advice, as well as collective investment schemes.

Our lawyers are consequently exposed to a very wide variety of high-profile and excellent work and have numerous opportunities to advance their skill-sets.

We are focussed on developing our offering in Saudi Arabia by recruiting top calibre lawyers to join the team. We are therefore always keen to hear from lawyers from a variety of backgrounds who are interested in joining Allen & Overy.
