BSA traces its roots to 2001 when it was first founded in Dubai, with the primary mission of offering legal services that combine comprehensive knowledge of local law with a modernised and progressive approach to legal practice.
Today, following the joining of Senior Partner Dr Ahmad Bin Hezeem, former Director General of Dubai Courts, and the opening of further offices across the Middle East and now France, we have consolidated our excellence-driven regional reach. Our access to key local authorities and our solid legal expertise across a broad spectrum of industries sets us apart as one of the few Dubai headquartered legal practices that have exceeded their original boundaries.
The growth of BSA is built by teams of innovative legal minds, possessing extensive regional experience, local rights of audience before all courts in the jurisdictions in which we operate, and through the support network of our affiliates in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region (including the GCC), Asia and Europe.
Our lawyers come from diverse backgrounds with the majority dual-qualified in both regional and multinational jurisdictions and who speak Arabic, English and French fluently. Our team stays abreast of regional and international legal developments and tailors the firm’s advisory approach to our clients’ respective industry sector needs.
We are members of Meritas, a global network of independent law firms, which aims to give clients access to quality legal expertise worldwide. We are also members of IsFin, the world’s leading network of Islamic Finance lawyers, and we serve as the exclusive representatives of IsFin for the UAE.
