Doha – Global law firm K&L Gates LLP was recognized during the recent 2021 Qatar Business Law Forum & Awards, retaining the “Property and Construction Firm of the Year” title for a fourth consecutive year. The Banking & Finance and Corporate & Commercial teams also received honorable mentions. The annual forum and awards ceremony recognizes exceptional achievement within Qatar’s legal community and are judged by a panel of nearly 30 industry leaders, academic practitioners, and government officials.

Managing Partner, Europe and the Middle East, Tony Griffiths stated: “The state of Qatar is a crucial market for K&L Gates, not just as a vital part of our Middle East practice but given Qatar’s significant global investment footprint for our entire firm. I am delighted to see our contribution to Doha’s legal market being recognized in our 10th year in Qatar.”
