Levant Law Practice:
LEVANT LAW PRACTICE is a regional law firm. It was first established under the name Mattar Mouawad Majdalany el Khazen Law Firm in Lebanon – subsequent to the merger in 2002 of Mattar & Mattar Law Firm (founded by Mohammad and Rabeh F. Mattar) and the respective law offices of Gebran Majdalany, Rafic Mouawad and Youssef el Khazen.
In 2008 with the entry of two new partners, Adib Tohme and Fadi Nader, the Firm decided to change its name to Levant Law Practice (LLP) with the aim of developing a fully fledged regional practice through offices and affiliations in Beirut, Riyadh and Doha, and correspondent law firms in the major business centers of the Levant, the Gulf region and Africa.
Dedicated to advising corporate and individual clients involved in a wide range of local and cross border transactions as well as in complex multi- jurisdictional disputes, LLP represents multinational and regional companies, financial institutions, state-owned entities, family and other privately held businesses, entrepreneurs and individuals.
With a strong presence in Beirut (where its head office is based), Riyadh (in association with the law firm of Adnan H. Yaseen), Doha (in collaboration with Rashed Bin Raja Al Marri Law Office), and a group of selected correspondent law firms throughout the region, LLP is well positioned to serve its diversified client base and to provide adequate legal support to their sophisticated needs.
