Middle East, North Africa and South Asia



Allen & Overy have had a strong presence in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia (MENASA) region for over 30 years and currently has offices in five of its major business centres – Casablanca, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Riyadh.

Our coverage extends beyond the jurisdictions in which our offices are based into wider MENASA.

Our lawyers combine the international expertise gained on high-profile, multi-jurisdictional transactions with deep local roots, the result of many years’ experience in the local markets where they operate. They advise on some of the most innovative and complex transactions in the region, many of which are market firsts.

Over the years we have also built strong relationships with key government agencies, regulatory bodies and local law firms across MENASA. Thanks to this combination we are now recognised as the preferred legal adviser to some of the most successful organisations operating across the region.

Countries covered include:​

Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Pakistan, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.
