Founded in 1953, Alem & Associates became one of the leading Lebanese and regional law firms that grew to feature today a wide range of legal services offered through its offices in Beirut, Riyadh, Dubai, and Damascus. With six (6) partners and more than forty (40) lawyers in Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, Alem & Associates regularly advises corporations and private clients throughout the Levant and the Gulf regions on all issues related to corporate and tax structuring, construction and real estate, corporate and corporate governance, mergers & acquisitions, IPO's, capital markets, financial services (both conventional and Islamic), franchising, agency and distribution, oil & gas, regulatory issues, PPPs, amongst others.
In addition, governments and governmental agencies in Lebanon and around the region, as well as international agencies, rely on the Firm's expertise for advice on critical reforms in a variety of sectors including corporate governance, securities and capital markets, banking and financial services, and telecommunications to name just a few.
As the first law firm to pioneer the “regional” law firm model, Alem & Associates is now the first Lebanese firm to embrace a corporate model of governance and management. This has been designed to enhance the Firm's ability to provide comprehensive services to its clients delivered in a seamless and integrated manner. Regardless of the geographic location, our clients continue to have ready access to legal services on national, regional and international basis.
With an unfetched commitment to excellence, Alem & Associates has earned its reputation as one of Lebanon's most prestigious and leading law firms. Alem & Associates is currently featured by both the Legal 500 and Chambers Global as a top tier Lebanese law firm on account of “its international expertise, high-profile, and high-quality work”.
Alem & Associates has a well-established presence in the regional marketplace. Our lawyers are concentrated on core teams based in Beirut and Riyadh (Riyadh office also covering Bahrain), which maximize our ability to anticipate and respond to our client's business needs.
International clients appreciate our ability to work in the world's three (3) great legal traditions - civil law, common law and Islamic Sharia' — as well as our team's fluency in English, French, Arabic, Spanish and Portuguese.
