Domestic firm Abdullah KH Al-Ayoub & Associates acts as local counsel on transactions including banking, securities, investment fund or M&A deals, either representing foreign clients (investment banks, lenders and corporations) directly or working alongside international law firms.  

One client, the head of compliance at an international lender, is impressed by the firm’s banking advice, explaining: “The lawyers are very knowledgeable and efficient. They understand the context of the query and give good advice. I would rate them highly for Kuwait.” Senior associate Sameer Goel is recommended by the client. 

Recent work highlights for the firm saw it advising a US investment bank on regulations relating to investing in foreign funds and foreign exchange transactions; assisting a German investment bank with an €11 million refinancing; and, advising a UAE based law firm and its Asian client on insolvency issues relating to its Kuwait business.
