‘I worked with them since 2017 and until today in local Omani court disputes that are worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Year by year, I noted their distinguished expertise and excellent judgement when offering advices and handling trials. The team has always been highly attentive and has quick responses which progressed our work fluently.’

‘Said Al-Shahry has an impressive and strategic approach which is advantageous in high complex cases. He is always readily available to contact which gave rise to a smooth collaboration. Khaled Al Wazir has good analytical reasoning and attention to detail. His client-friendly approach is apparent due to his good follow-up and cooperative manner of work. ’

‘With them, we were doing more working than arguing, And I realized it was because the head of the team leader was more interested in the hands-on aspect of the case. I sat down with him and together we went over each documents in file and determined the tasks. The next day we reassigned everyone tasks, created an open discussion format for raising questions and concerns, And set up a timeline for completing the file of our case. We did get the case done on time and we achievements all the targets, I loved every minute of it.’

‘Competent, hard-working, focused lawyers. Commitment to quality collegiality and esprit de corps.’

‘A diverse and multilingual team, well rounded.’

‘Always there to assist in a timely manner.’
