Meysan Partners was established in January 2015, with its inaugural office in Kuwait. Its client includes some of the largest regional blue-chip companies, family groups, multinational corporations, international financial institutions, sovereign governments and their agencies, domestic corporations, financial institutions, as well as high net worth individuals. Meysan Partners seeks to set itself apart by offering high quality, innovative legal advice delivered by a team of highly-experienced Arabic and English speaking lawyers. This is underpinned by over 35 years of combined legal experience in the Middle East shared by its partners who, in recent years, have advised clients across a range of industry sectors on some of the most noteworthy and complex transactions and disputes in the region. Our client list includes regional blue-chip companies and family groups, multinational corporations, international financial institutions, sovereign governments and their agencies, domestic corporations and financial institutions, as well as high net worth individuals.
Meysan Partners adopts a boutique approach to its practice, limiting the number and type of matters it undertakes, in order to ensure the highest quality offering for our clients. We strive to maintain a ratio of associates to partners significantly below that of other firms in the region, and generally focus on matters that require the focus and experience of our partners, particularly in relation to cross border regional transactions and high-stakes commercial litigation.
Our clients rely on our global perspective and on our in-depth knowledge and understanding of local and regional laws. We are adept at handling high-stakes disputes involving complicated fact patterns as well as novel questions of law. In 2015, Meysan Partners won the IFLR Award for Rising Star Law Firm of the Middle East. The IFLR confirmed that Meysan received more nominations for the category than any other firm by a wide margin, despite being less than one year old, and that major firms in the region considered Meysan ‘s partners as "long-standing and respected practitioners." In November 2015, Meysan was one of only five firms (and the only Kuwaiti firm) shortlisted for Regional Law Firm of the Year by The Oath.
