Abuhimed Alsheikh Alhagbani Law Firm (AS&H) in
cooperation with Clifford Chance

Clifford Chance has been advising clients in Saudi Arabia for over 40 years.

On 6 November 2016, we entered into a cooperation arrangement with the newly established Abuhimed Alsheikh Alhagbani Law Firm (AS&H) to deliver world-class legal services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The new cooperation replaces the stand-alone Clifford Chance Law Firm that was established in 2013.

AS&H has been formed by three past members of Clifford Chance's talented and widely recognised cohort of senior Saudi lawyers: Majid Al-Sheikh and Mansoor Al-Hagbani, along with Dr. Fahad Abuhimed, most recently a deputy minister at the Ministry of Commerce and Investment. Dr. Fahad is an alumnus of Al-Jadaan & Partners Law Firm, Clifford Chance's former Saudi association firm, and previously spent a year on secondment to Clifford Chance.

We have had an established presence in the Middle East for over 40 years, advising both regional and international clients. We also have extensive relationships with other leading firms throughout the MENA region so that we can assist clients in those countries where we do not have an office.

We've found that clients get the best results when their team is familiar with the region's languages, cultures, laws and business processes. So we've built an on-the-ground team of almost 100 lawyers with sophisticated capabilities and a wide range of expertise. We regularly work on intra-regional and outbound transactions, and our track record shows that we have one of the strongest teams in the region.
