For more than a decade, Covington has served business entities, government agencies, and private investors with interests throughout the Middle East and the GCC states, including Bahrain, the Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia. Our team includes lawyers who have lived and worked across the region, and we have developed a close network of local counsel and experts to ensure comprehensive, localized, and objective advice.

Combining local knowledge and global reach, we support our clients with strategic advice across business lines, territories, and sectors. As regional companies have grown and expanded internationally, they have turned to us for advice on their most critical business matters. We understand the challenges of doing business in vastly different legal contexts, and we help navigate our clients through the narrow channels of unfamiliar markets and territories.

Our “law plus policy” focus is unique in the region: our lawyers and policy advisors include a trove of former high-ranking government officials and policymakers who provide unparalleled support to our government clients, including individual ministries, national heritage companies, and other state-owned or -controlled enterprises in areas of trade and business policy, regulatory development, and global regulatory interface.

Whether supporting foreign companies doing business in the Gulf or assisting local businesses in their efforts to expand internationally, our lawyers and experts partner with our clients to tackle their most complex commercial and legal challenges.
