It is with great enthusiasm and pride that we announce that ASAR – Al Ruwayeh & Partners has been presented with multiple awards at this year’s IFLR Middle East Awards, namely:
- National Law Firm of the Year: Kuwait
- Deal of the year: M&A Kuwait Finance House/Ahli United bank
- Deal of the year: Equity Americana Restaurants dual listing IPO
The IFLR Middle East Awards ceremony was held at a gala event in Jumeirah, Dubai yesterday evening at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and served to recognise the exceptional performance of, amongst others, private practice law firms and in-house legal teams in the Middle East.
To have walked away with three awards fills us with immense pride as it is not only indicative of the high standards of hard work, discipline and dedication we set for ourselves, but also client confidence.
Sam Habbas, Senior Partner at ASAR, said: “We are elated to have received the Kuwait Law Firm of the Year Award for 2023, and also each of the M&A and Equity Deals of the Year Awards. These awards are a testament to ASAR’s exceptional bespoke legal services and commitment to providing clients with the highest quality legal advice. ASAR has been leading some of the most ground-breaking and innovative transactions in Kuwait and Bahrain, and we are fortunate to be acknowledged for all the work we’ve done for our clients over the years. Their success is our success.”
Ahmed Barakat, Managing Partner at ASAR, added: “It is such a great achievement for our firm to have been awarded these awards, and in particular, the National Law Firm of the Year Award for Kuwait for a record 14th time. The winning of these IFLR awards also reflects our firm’s commitment to provide our clients with service of the highest order so that we may cross the finishing line with them in successfully closing ground-breaking and innovative transactions.”
Our gratitude goes out to our clients for their continued trust in us, our team of thoroughly dedicated lawyers, and community for unrivalled support. We extend our thanks to the IFLR team for yet another well-organised and successful event.
Congratulations to all teams, fellow winners and finalists!
