For decades, White & Case has been helping its clients successfully create and build their businesses in the Middle East and Africa.
We have been active in the Middle East for more than 50 years. We provide a full range of services to clients involved in commercial and financial transactions, from investments and project engineering and construction contract law, to acquisitions and Islamic-based financing, among many others.
Our Middle East practice group includes lawyers from the Firm’s offices in the Middle East, Europe, North America and Asia and is active throughout the region. In addition to our extensive work in Saudi Arabia, the Firm has advised clients doing business in Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Qatar, Oman and the United Arab Emirates.
We also have been assisting companies doing business on the African continent for more than 30 years. We bring our formidable local and international expertise to the service of South African and international clients in South Africa and elsewhere throughout the continent.
White & Case opened an office in Johannesburg in 1995, making it the first and only foreign law firm to establish an office in South Africa. We established the Johannesburg office in recognition of the growing importance of South Africa as an international investment destination, as well for its proximity to the markets of sub-Saharan Africa.
