K&A, is pleased to announce the opening of a new office in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. This will be K&A’s first office opening outside of its Riyadh main office.
K&A’s Jeddah office comes on the back of K&A serving a first-tier list of corporate clients in Saudi Arabia’s western region, along with a number of multinational investors looking to invest in that region. As these clients have increasingly turned to K&A for legal services, these relationships have deepened, creating a need for K&A to establish an on-the-ground presence to continue to expand those relationships. K&A also views key Vision 2030 projects in and around Saudi Arabia’s western region to be very important and in need of premium legal services.
K&A’s Jeddah-based team will be fully integrated with its 30+ lawyer legal team in Riyadh, and will cover the five practice areas the firm is known for: Corporate/M&A, Capital Markets, Finance and Projects, Dispute Resolution, and Regulatory. K&A’s “practice based” organizational structure should allow for quick integration of the two offices. This office-agnostic approach to management of our team allows K&A to deliver the best lawyers to its clients regardless of office location.
Managing Partner, Zeyad Khoshaim, commented: “The opening of the Jeddah office is a critical milestone to K&A’s maturity and reflects the deep relationships that we have built with our clients. We look forward to our contribution to that community and helping grow our practice further, with some of the best legal talent in Saudi Arabia that may have not been able to relocate to Riyadh.”
The opening of the Jeddah office follows K&A’s work on some of Saudi Arabia’s landmark transactions and litigation wins, including the Saudi Aramco / SABIC acquisition, the Sipchem / Sahara business merger, the enforcement of multimillion arbitration awards, and advising lenders and sponsors on various financings and projects including in respect of the Arabian Centres Company refinancing, and the Dumat Al Jandal wind project.
K&A has also achieved the prestigious status of becoming the only Saudi Arabian law firm to be ranked as band 1 in leading law firm ranking journal “Chambers Global” in all practices: Corporate/M&A, Financing, Dispute Resolution, and Capital Markets.
