Safeguarding our organisation’s interests and mitigating risks are vital to the success and security of our business. Our legal and risk teams oversee these key areas, ensuring our reputation for transparency, diligence, and accountability is maintained. The teams’ work, including facilitating contract reviews, due diligence, and successfully closing projects, is crucial to our investment mandate.
With investments at the core of what we do, the legal team provides timely support to ensure the successful closures of important acquisitions.
Key Milestones in 2019:
We always strive for excellence with collaboration and teamwork at the core of what we do. Our legal team’s professionalism sets a true example for how we strongly abide by our values. For the second consecutive edition, the team has been selected as one of the top 100 in-house teams in The Legal 500 GC Powerlist Middle East: Teams, a publication that ranks the region’s legal in-house providers, reflecting the high calibre of the department.
Throughout the year, the team continued to improve its legal support to the organisation’s different departments, and is developing a framework for the standardisation of common legal documents and developing check lists to ensure efficient and timely review.
As part of our commitment to support the growth of our people, the legal team organised a series of customised workshops about international mergers and acquisitions conducted by tier 1 international law firms. These workshops have proven to be critical and beneficial, ensuring continued learning across the organisation.
