K&A is pleased to announce the addition of Basma Khashoggi, as Counsel, to its Tier 1 Corporate and Regulatory Practices.
Basma is both a Saudi Arabian and New York qualified senior lawyer who has significant experience in a wide range of corporate transactions and regulatory matters.
For corporate transactions, Basma’s experience includes joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, restructuring, and franchising. In addition to representing a wide-range of international and local clients, Basma has built sector-specific expertise in advising and working on transactions within the healthcare industry including pharmaceuticals, medical devices and biopharama, retail and e-commerce as well as hospitality and leisure.
For regulatory matters, Basma worked with a number of regulatory authorities in the Kingdom to draft legislation and drive legal reform.
Basma will continue the expansion of the firm’s presence across the Kingdom and will reside in K&A’s newly opened Jeddah office.
Managing Partner, Zeyad Khoshaim, commented: “We are delighted that a veteran internationally trained lawyer such as Basma has joined us. In K&A, she has found a home to grow the strongest Saudi Arabian firm with on-the-ground capabilities. With her broad experience and her specialized insights, her contribution will ensure that K&A’s clients are well served.”
This hiring comes on the back of K&A continuing to be ranked as tier 1 and band 1 by all major ranking journals: Chambers Global, IFLR 1000, and Legal 500, and has recently secured the engagement to a landmark merger in the Kingdom.
