The Doha office of White & Case LLP has one of the leading corporate, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) law practices in Qatar. White & Case has led on many of the largest and most complex M&A transactions in Qatar.
Regularly advising various sovereign wealth funds of the State of Qatar in their various investments around the world, White & Case also advises on the local Qatari market. For example, we acted as lead legal counsel for the target in one of Qatar’s landmark M&A transactions, the takeover of Barwa by Alaqaria, resulting in the largest listed real estate company in Qatar with a market capitalization exceeding USD 3 billion. This transaction resulted in the first public merger in Qatar consummated by takeover, and set many of the precedents and practices of Qatari takeover law. We also regularly advise multinational corporates and regional conglomerates in their domestic and cross-border mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, public tender offers, and joint ventures across the full range of industry sectors. We are one of the only global law firms in Qatar with an on-the-ground team of internationally experienced M&A lawyers that provide assistance to clients on mergers and acquisition worldwide. Our ability to provide our clients with advice in complex and novel transactions, regardless of whether they are governed by Qatari, English, or US law is unrivalled in the Qatari market. We are regularly recognized by awards and accolades for our work on ground-breaking transactions in Qatar and the wider region. White & Case is recognized as “outstanding team with strong capabilities in corporate restructurings, M&A transactions and projects” by Chambers Global (2017). We are ranked Tier 1 in Qatar by Legal 500 (2017) and Band 1 Corporate / Commercial practice in Qatar by Chambers Global (2017). We have also recently been named “International Law Firm of the Year” by LexisNexis Qatar Business Law Awards (2016).
