With proven reserves of both oil and natural gas and one of the world's highest per capita production rates, Qatar’s economy is one of the fastest growing in the world. Its ambitious National Vision 2030 provides for substantial investment of its wealth in four major areas – human, social, economic, and environmental development – with the objective of creating a competitive and diversified economy and a high standard of living for its people.
The Qatar office of K&L Gates is located in the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) and is committed to supporting our Qatari clients both domestically and abroad – as well as our international clients doing business in Qatar – by helping them to meet their legal and regulatory needs in pursuit of their key objectives. We have a team of lawyers in Doha with deep understanding of the Qatar market combined with substantial Middle East and international experience.
Our Doha lawyers – supported by a larger team in the Gulf Region – have distinguished themselves in Qatar and internationally in projects, energy and infrastructure (including transportation), banking and finance, including Islamic Finance, telecoms, media and technology, real estate and construction, intellectual property, and dispute resolution, among other areas. And the seamless integration of our Doha practices with our offices throughout the world – a hallmark of K&L Gates – ensures our clients that their legal requirements will be met with the highest quality service and skill wherever they happen to be doing business.
