BFHHC signs tenancy agreement with Al Tamimi & Company
Bahrain Financial Harbour Holding Company (BFHHC) has signed a tenancy agreement with Al Tamimi& Company, the largest and most dynamic law firm in the Middle East.
Al Tamimi, which has been providing legal services to clients in the Middle East for over 25 years, has chosen the Bahrain Financial Harbour (BFH), the Kingdom’s acknowledged business hub, as the location for its new Bahrain office.
The law firm has leased 223sqm on the 13th floor of the landmark development’s West Tower, joining a growing number of international businesses, local companies and financial institutions that are taking advantage of the financial city’s strategic and stunning waterfront location, state of the art facilities, and contemporary, fully-equipped office spaces. The popularity of BFH has helped to make it one of the most desirable business addresses in the Gulf region.
Commenting on the signing of the agreement, BFH, said, “We are delighted to welcome Al Tamimi to Bahrain and to the Bahrain Financial Harbour community. This agreement further underscores Bahrain’s position as a financial epicenter and as a significant regional commercial hub.”
Al Tamimi’s new Bahrain office will be led by Ms. Foutoun Hajjar, an English- qualified Solicitor and Barrister with over two decades of professional experience, with the last ten years in Bahrain where she has worked in both private practice and in-house positions.
Commenting on the signing, Ms. Hajjar, said, “We are pleased to have signed this agreement with the BFH. Our new office space in the landmark Bahrain Financial Harbour development provides the firm with a permanent operational presence in Bahrain, and marks a significant milestone for Al Tamimi as we now have a fixed presence across all six of the GCC countries.”
The launch of the firm’s Bahrain office takes the number of offices for Al Tamimi to 14 across eight countries. In addition to Bahrain, the firm has offices in the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Iraq. Al Tamimi works with a diverse range of clients representing both the public and private sectors in the region, with the Middle East being the core focus for their business.
Ms. Hajjar added, “In addition to the many benefits that working in ‘Business Friendly’ Bahrain brings, Al Tamimi will have an office in the Kingdom’s most exhilarating waterfront development. BFH will provide our firm with a great location and the most technologically advanced business environment available, as we work to support even more businesses and individuals in Bahrain.”
