The Middle East and North Africa (“MENA”) is growing in global influence, with some six percent of the world’s population. MENA-based companies and families who are doing business in offshore jurisdictions are looking for optimum levels of service and significant expertise in international corporate transactions.
Through our global network, Conyers can offer you expert counsel in Bermuda, BVI, Cayman Islands and Mauritius law, combined with experience in cross-border transactions and a deep understanding of the MENA marketplace. Our client base in the region includes financiers, corporate groups, asset managers, onshore law firms and high net worth individuals and families.
Strong client relationships are at the heart of our service offering. We know you are looking for a legal partner who will provide you with a consistently high-quality personalised service, at every stage of the business life-cycle.
Our lawyers can advise you on a wide variety of corporate and commercial matters, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, IPOs, restructuring and insolvency, corporate and project finance (including Islamic finance), and aircraft and ship finance and leasing.
Our investment funds practice features strongly in the MENA region. We represent asset managers, funds and their sponsors on formation, as well as institutional investors, sovereign wealth funds and high net worth individuals investing in private equity funds, real estate funds, infrastructure funds and hedge funds, including Sharia-compliant funds.
