In the Middle East, family businesses dominate key industries and employ over half the region’s workforce. Family businesses are the mainspring of every Middle Eastern economy. However, they are confronted by major challenges. That is where we can help.

Our Family Business Offering

Al Tamimi & Company is the Middle Eastern leader in the development of robust legal protections to guard against the twin threats faced by every family business:

the severe risks accompanying any transition in senior leadership, namely operational gridlock and internal discord; and

the risk that financial failure in one part of the family business will contaminate the wider business and consume the family’s core assets.

For the past 15 years we have helped family businesses by: 

  • crafting binding family agreements which secure the clear and orderly transition of ownership and enable future stewardship and protection against disruption to the enterprise; and
  • structuring the businesses and investments of families to quarantine core assets against legal risks and exposures.

We offer families solutions which are:

  • workable under Middle Eastern legal systems;
  • flexible enough to accommodate a family's particular requirements; and
  • compliant with Sharia.
