Kaden Boriss UAE and Al Jashani Lawyers announce JCA to accelerate growth

 

Law firm Kaden Boriss UAE today announced a joint cooperation agreement (JCA) with Al Jashani Advocates & Legal Consultants.

Whereas Kaden Boriss UAE is known globally for its transactional practices in the areas of Business Law, Trade Law, and Mergers & Acquisitions, Al Jashani is reputed for its litigation practice in UAE. The move is expected to further boost expansion for the firms as they now boast of enviable expertise in litigation and non-litigation areas.

“The move will be a disruptor in the market. It will allow us to offer the most comprehensive and competitive service offering under one roof. We are extremely excited and bullish about the opportunities that this move will create for both the players,” said Sunil Ambalavelil, Managing Partner, Kaden Boriss, UAE.

The combined presence of the two firms will now help them leverage five offices in UAE with combined workforce of 30 people. The move will allow both players to expand their business in Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) region. The merger will also allow better resource as well as cost optimisation for both the firms.

“Both firms have vast experience across the full spectrum of corporate, commercial and litigation services. We will complement each other’s strengths and provide a holistic engagement experience to local as well as multinational clients,” said Asma Ali Mohsin Al Jashani, Chairman, Al Jashani.

Legal market in UAE is fast emerging as a key opportunity area. The large number of business houses venturing into and out of this market makes it a lucrative professional practice area.

 “Globally we are trying to position Kaden Boriss as a full service law firm with equal strength in litigation and non-litigation areas. This move will open doors to experiment with our own ability to cope up with litigation as well as explore at other international tie-ups,” said Hemant Batra, Founder & Global Chairman of Kaden Boriss.
