About The Law Office of Dr. Mujahid Al-Sawwaf

The Law Offices of Dr. Mujahid M. Al-Sawwaf offer legal representation of the highest quality to both local and foreign concerns doing business in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In this regard, attorneys in our offices have acquired specializations in almost all areas of the law of Saudi Arabia, and these specializations allow us to effectively represent our clients in any significant matter arising in the Kingdom. Our practice consists primarily of the representation in Saudi Arabia of major multinational corporations, banks and financial institutions. We advise and assist such entities in the formation and maintenance of their joint ventures in the Kingdom, in the negotiation and performance of their major contracts here and in connection with their distributorship arrangements in the Kingdom. In the case of domestic and overseas banks and financial institutions, we advise on matters related to syndicated loans and guarantees, sophisticated project financing arrangements, Islamic financial transactions and other complex financial transactions. We have often been engaged to represent banks and financial institutions in major default and restructuring transactions as well as in court proceedings in the Kingdom. Our practice is also noted for its experience and participation in major litigation in every jurisdiction in the Kingdom. The cases undertaken by our offices for local and overseas clients include construction contract disputes, the recovery of debts, restructuring and insolvency proceedings, the enforcement of major contracts and trademark infringement actions. It is not the object of our firm to replace either a client's in-house counsel or its regular outside counsel on any matter but rather to supplement such counsel with our own specialized advice and assistance concerning the laws, regulations and business customs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Accordingly, included among the firm's clients are a large number of the most respected American and European law firms to whom we provide advice on a regular basis. Reliable advice on Saudi Arabian laws, regulations and business customs is particularly crucial to any business entity or financial institution transacting business in Saudi Arabia. This is because the governmental authorities of Saudi Arabia have established very clearly that, once individuals or goods are within the boundaries of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabian law, and only Saudi Arabian law, will apply notwithstanding any steps a party may have taken to invoke the laws of another jurisdiction to govern an agreement or transaction. The legal environment of Saudi Arabia, like its culture, is in a process of unprecedented evolution at the start of the twenty-first century. At the same time, the traditional bases of the law ? Islam and the Shari'a ? remain the primary sources of the laws and regulations of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This combination of the traditional and the modern requires a legal interface between the Saudi Arabian legal culture and those of other jurisdictions. The Law Offices of Dr. Mujahid M. Al-Sawwaf provide such an interface.
