A&O link up with Saudi Arabian firm
Allen & Overy has formed an alliance with a Saudi Arabian firm after the firm’s previous local sponsor Abdulaziz AlGasim announced that it had signed a deal with Linklaters.
A&O’s new exclusive association is with Saudi Arabian firm Zeyad S Khoshaim Law Firm, which is led by Zeyad Khoshaim. Khoshaim is in fact already a partner at A&O, having joined the firm from Abdulaziz AlGasim in 2010.
In a statement, A&O senior partner David Morley said: “Our association with Zeyad underscores A&O’s continuing commitment to Saudi Arabia. Zeyad’s practice is strategically aligned with A&O’s and we trust that our association with him will enable us to better serve our global and regional clients.
“Securing an association with Zeyad and his team we will also provide great continuity for our clients and ensures our high standards of service will be maintained during this transition.”
