Al-Ansari & Associates law office won the IFLR award as the best law firm in Qatar for M&A. The honour is a result of Al Ansari & Associates’ vital role advising Uber in connection with its acquisition of Careem.
On this occasion, Mr. Mohammed Ahmad Al-Ansari, founder of Al-Ansari & Associates Law Firm, stated, “It is a pleasure for Al-Ansari & Associates to win the deal of the year award in the field of M&A from IFLR. This comes as a recognition to the effort of our team in furnishing the firm’s domestic and international clients with quality legal advice. Our firm works in accordance with the best international practices in the field of law, which has led to many international companies and international law firms vesting their trust in the firm and our team. On this occasion I congratulate all the law firms that have worked on this deal, which have also been recognized for the quality of their legal services.”
Uber’s acquisition of Careem is a milestone in the development of technological based investments in the Middle East region, relying upon a unique structure which was adopted by several companies and their assets acquired in the region. Such structure included our role in coordination and providing the necessary advice regarding full compliance with local laws and decisions issued by regulators of the transportation sector.
Al-Ansari & Associates have competed for, and won, many international awards for their legal services, especially from 2014 to 2019. Al-Ansari & Associates were also nominated, together with a number of international law offices, for the Law Firm of the Year Award in the field of arbitration for the year 2020 in the Middle East Legal Awards which are organized by the Corporate Lawyers Association – Middle East in cooperation with LegalWeek. The winners of that award will be announced next November.
