We work hand-in-hand with a wide range government ministries and authorities to support in achieving their ambitious mandates set in line with Vision 2030.

Whether we are drafting new laws and regulations; providing detailed strategic project support built on international comparative exercises and benchmarks; or providing day-to-day legal function support, we ensure we partner with our clients to deliver the best service to achieve their objectives.
