ASAR – Al Ruwayeh & Partners
ASAR - Al Ruwayeh & Partners is Kuwait's leading corporate and commercial outfit. The firm, which established an office in Manama in 2006, provides local law advice acting alongside its leading international counterparts. The firm handles a mix of financial and corporate work but is busier and better known in the former area. A strong portfolio of recent transactions sees it join tier 3 in banking and capital markets.
Managing partner Michael Durgavich leads on most of the firm's big deals. One of the largest transactions in the last 12 months saw Durgavich lead a team, working alongside Hogan Lovells, advising Kuwait Finance House on providing the Bahrain branch of a Turkish bank with $100 million facility.
