EXPERTISE

HEALTHCARE, HOSPITALITY & EDUCATION

The Healthcare industry is constantly changing and developing. Advisors with sector-specific expertise are essential to ensure opportunities are not missed whilst risk is kept to a minimum. The industry is heavily regulated in Oman and the region generally so it is not only important to ensure compliance with such laws and regulations but also to understand the practicalities of their application.

Our lawyers work with senior management and in-house legal departments to deliver comprehensive and pragmatic advice.

We advise clients on issues such as mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, investment, compliance and biotech development and commercial services together with the day-to-day matters of employment, procurement, disputes, health & safety and general commercial matters.

Similarly the hotels, hospitality and leisure industry continues to grow at a remarkable rate and with that comes a range of legal challenges ranging from complex corporate and regulatory matters through to acquisition/disposals, construction, employment, health & safety, licensing and disputes. Our lawyers have experience in helping hotels, restaurants, cafes and sporting facilities amongst others navigate through such legal issues.

The law relating to the education sector in Oman and the region tends to be quite specialist. Growth and increasing competition within the sector, combined with increasing and unprecedented regulation, mean that education institutions and the experts within them, are in need of more support than ever. It is therefore crucial to remain abreast of any change and pre-empt risk.

Our lawyers advise educational clients on their wideranging operational needs from legal advice on commercial matters, property, construction, procurement, intellectual property, research contracts, student issues or employment, and guide them through the opportunities and risks they might be facing.
