New Delhi, Aug 6 (IANS) City-based corporate law firm Kochhar and Co. has tied up with prominent law firms — Khalid Alnowaiser in Saudi Arabia and Mohammad Issa Odeh (MIO) in the United Arab Emirates — to provide legal consulting services to corporates in the region.
‘Trade and business between India and the Middle East has grown exponentially and we have witnessed the consummation of enormous business transactions between the regions which are becoming ever more complex in nature,’ said Rohit Kochhar, chairman, Kochhar and CO, Thursday.
Law firms of Khalid Al Nowaiser, with its offices in Jeddah and Riyadh, provide legal services to national and multinational corporations with business operations in Saudi Arabia and Gulf Cooperation Council countries.
While MIO Lawyers and Legal Consultants, with offices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, offer legal opinions to corporate customers such as banks, engineering establishments, insurance companies and many international business groups.
This partnership will cover the entire length and breadth of legal representations in areas such as commercial transactions, banking and finance, arbitration, Islamic finance and infrastructure projects.
‘Indian and foreign clients alike will now have access to top quality international standards of legal support through the consortium of Kochhar and Co. and its highly reputed partners being the Alnowaiser and the MIO firms,’ added Kochhar.
The Middle East business activities such as oil and gas exploration, construction of modern townships, IT parks, free trade zones, power projects, building metros, roads and highways require a myriad of complex legal and finance documentation and structure.
Recently, the firm also established itself in Japan. It acts as Indian counsel for some of the largest multinational corporations from North America, Europe, South-East Asia and Japan.
