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. Office senior partner Amjad Hussain and transactional team members collected the award on behalf of the firm.

The firm was recognized for leading the merger in Qatar of Masraf Al Rayan with Al Khaliji Bank, which led to the creation of one of the largest Islamic banks globally. Earlier this month, K&L Gates also received the Banking & Finance Law Award from the Islamic Finance News (IFN).
