LAWFUEL – Middle East Law News – Law Jobs – Qays H. Zu’bi Attorneys & Legal Consultants links up with OBG to research the forthcoming edition of ‘The Report: Emerging Bahrain 2007’ – the leading guide to the Kingdom’s evolving and political landscape – at a time when there is a surge in economic, financial and regulatory activities taking place in Bahrain.
Qays Hatim Zu’bi, founder & Managing Partner of the Firm is confident that the relationship between the Firm and OBG will be productive and is eager for his team to provide expert legal analysis and insight on the key legal changes taking place in the Kingdom’s banking and finance sectors.
‘In view of the Free Trade Agreement entered into with the United States, significant developments have taken place over the last year in these sectors which are expected to create a ‘freer’ and more secure environment for both local and international investors. The new legal developments are complimented by stronger regulatory controls in the banking and finance sectors as well as the enactment of the Middle East’s first Trust Law,’ explains Zu’bi.
Such open, more streamlined laws will be warmly welcomed by potential investors as some of the restrictions currently in place for external investors are modified and removed. ‘This should create increased confidence and higher returns amongst those looking to invest,’ adds Zu’bi.
Qays H. Zu’bi Attorneys & Legal Consultants is uniquely placed to provide expert local legal analysis. It has built an impressive client base and proudly acts for a number of high profile corporations, banks and financial institutions in Bahrain and internationally. It also represents high net worth private individuals and has previously conducted work for government and quasi government bodies and institutions.
‘We are delighted to be working with someone of Qays H. Zu’bi Attorneys & Legal Consultants’ calibre. Its well established reputation and ranging portfolio means the Firm is excellently equipped to lead upon legal issues and trends within Bahrain and the Gulf Region and we look forward to working with them over the coming months,’ said Elise Postigo, Country Director, at OBG.
The agreement underscores OBG’s commitment to cooperating with locally-based institutions in compiling their series of top-level country economic and political reports. OBG’s hallmark of unrivalled market intelligence combines the publisher’s international expertise with the on-the-ground knowledge of world class, locally-based institutions.
‘Working with a prominent outfit like OBG is really exciting for us. It also enables us to enhance our profile in the region and build positively on our growing reputation,’ said Zu’bi.
