As one of the earliest corporate practitioners in the history of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Law Firm of Hassan Mahassni has, and continues to, regularly advise on a wide array of corporate and commercial matters to both regional and international corporations and entities.
With a corporate practice in the Kingdom of around 50 years, the Law Firm’s corporate team continues to rely on its “in-depth knowledge of the nuanced complexities of Saudi law” (Legal 500, 2019) and its extensive corporate experience in the Saudi market while adapting to the fast-changing corporate environment in the Kingdom to offer the best advice and assistance on, inter alia, joint ventures, incorporations, restructurings, liquidations, foreign investments and commercial contracts.
The Law Firm has acted for and represented buyers, sellers, lenders, advisers and financial intermediaries, majority and minority shareholders, multinational corporations, medium-sized companies and individuals. It advised and provided professional consultations to multinational engineering and constructions companies, shipping companies, hotel management companies, hospital management companies, insurance companies, producers of consumer and industrial products, investment banks, commercial banks, Islamic financial institutions, airlines, mining companies, electronics manufacturers, defense contractors, onshore and offshore drilling companies, publishing and entertainment companies and project developers.
Additionally, in recent years, the Law Firm has been involved in some of the largest corporate projects, including, inter alia, a corporate restructuring project of one of the largest public companies in the Kingdom, a 100 million dollar corporate acquisition project involving two of the largest companies in the Kingdom and a joint venture sale project involving a reputable French shareholder seeking to purchase an entire agency business, including the assets and liabilities, of the local agent.
