Arab Law Bureau was established in 1994 by Mr. Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Khalifa, a former legal adviser and ex-ambassador to the Qatari Foreign Ministry. The firm is registered with the Ministry of Justice as a local firm which allows our lawyers to appear before all of the courts and tribunals in Qatar. Arab Law Bureau is also registered as an LLP in the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC), being one of the first entities registered in QFC, and the first law firm to be registered by the QFC Regulatory Authority.

Arab Law Bureau (ALB) has established itself as one of the leading law firms in Qatar. Our work on some of the largest projects in the country and our links to the key Qatari authorities reflect not only our first-rate legal expertise but also our approach to client service.
