"Peers have a high regard for Khalid Garousha, who is 'not just a standout figure because of his longevity - he's a very good operator too.' He has been based in the Middle East since 2000, and handles a range of M&A deals, joint ventures and private equity matters." (Chambers Global 2013, Corporate/Commercial, UAE)

“Corporate and equity capital markets expert Khalid Garousha rises to the top tier this year, following continuing acclaim from peers and clients, who say he is ‘very commercially oriented’ and ‘a great guy who really knows his stuff’.” (Chambers Global 2012 Corporate/Commercial, UAE)

“Khalid Garousha ... is deemed the ideal exponent of everything required of a lawyer in the Middle East: ‘I have a lot of respect for him, he is culturally attuned and very easy to deal with.’ “ (IFLR 2012)

“Garousha is singled out for his profound understanding of how to work in the region, in addition to his excellent technical skill.” (Chambers Global 2011 Middle East)
