How we work
he Law Firm of Hammad, Al Mehdar & Co. (“HMCO”) was founded in 1983 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. HMCO is considered to be one of the leading firms with an international dimension and practice, and has since expanded to become one of the largest groups of Saudi Arabian lawyers working together in private practice.
HMCO provide legal assistance and counselling in all areas of Saudi law. Our key areas of practice include corporate and commercial transaction, banking and finance, international trade, employment and labour, environment, securities, information technology, intellectual and real property, international taxation and dispute-resolution. We specialize in the role of company legal adviser and working on cutting-edge, complex and high-value transactions/disputes.
Since its establishment, HMCO has consistently provided comprehensive advice on a full range of corporate, commercial, financial and administrative matters to serve the needs of major local and international clients in the commercial, litigation, banking and private sectors.
In 1999 HMCO, together with Abbas F. Ghazzawi & Co. established The ALLIANCE. The ALLIANCE was recognized as world’s leading lawyers for Business (Chambers Global 2006) till the year 2009 when the both firms decided to separate. During the period of 1999 and 2009 ALLAINCE had been consistently ranked among the leading law firms of Saudi Arabia by Legal 500 (2003-04; 2004-05; 2005-06; 2006-07; and 2007-08 editions). Since 2006, Chambers Global Guide, London, also ranked ALLAINCE among the leading corporate/commercial and dispute resolution law firms of Saudi Arabia (2006; 2007; 2008).
In light of above recognitions it is impressive that HMCO (formerly aligned with Abbass F. Ghazzawi & Co) retains its prominence in the market. Presently, HMCO is only working in a strategic alliance with Shahrizat Rashid & Lee www.srl-law.com.my a leading Malaysian law firm plus other international law firms.
