Oman Office Update

Curtis is pleased to announce a new arrangement with expanding Omani litigation firm Mehdi Al Lawati Law Office (MALO). Effective from 2 June 2016, the new association is exclusive to Curtis.

The lawyers at Curtis and managing partner of MALO, Mehdi Al Lawati, know each other well, having already worked closely for over a decade. Experienced lawyer Mehdi Al Lawati has excellent relationships with the firm's clients in Muscat and is an integral part of Curtis' litigation and arbitration offering to clients.

Curtis' disputes capability will be further enhanced by the arrival at MALO of seasoned litigation lawyer Jamal Al Amri, who is licenced in the Primary and Appeal Courts in Oman.

News of Curtis' enhanced local litigation capability comes on the heels of the promotion of partner Simon Ward to Head of Disputes in the firm's Muscat office.

Bruce B. Palmer, Curtis' managing partner in Oman, commented "Running a market-leading disputes practice means constantly developing and growing the offering to clients. We are very happy with the arrangement and with Simon's promotion and look forward to Curtis' continuing excellence in the disputes field."
