Company & Commercial

Our team has broad experience in commercial matters, in particular commercial matters relating to the energy and construction sectors. We frequently advise on commercial issues relating to the infrastructure projects in Ras Laffan and Mesaieed industrial cities.

ALB has developed strong relationships with the government entities active in the energy sector in Qatar acting as local counsel to Qatar Electricity Water Company and Qatar Petroleum in relation to commercial matters on an ongoing basis.

We regularly advise property developers on construction projects throughout the course of the development as well as post completion (eg planning requirements, lease and marketing agreements etc.).

We have considerable experience drafting, reviewing and negotiating a variety of commercial contracts including:
  • Agency and distribution agreements
  • EPC agreements
  • Technical assistance agreements
  • Take off agreements
  • Maintenance agreements
  • Operation agreements
  • Employment agreements

ALB offers a full company formation service providing advice on administration and structuring arrangements appropriately with Qatari partners where necessary. Our strong relationship with the Ministry of Business & Trade, which manages company records and registrations, allows us to provide an efficient service.

In addition we advise on agency and distribution, intellectual property, insurance, and employment matters. We also offer general advice on trading in Qatar and on shipping matters.
