Alpha Advocates and Legal Consultants


The regulatory landscape in the GCC region is continually shifting. With an expert team of multi-lingual lawyers operating on the ground, Alpha Advocates and Legal Consultants regulatory team is unrivalled in its ability to help clients manage risk and achieve good commercial outcomes.

Experts in legal risk management

With an evolving regulatory situation, the emphasis is moving towards legal risk management supported by proactive control measures.

Our first step is always to help clients to identify the risk. Our approach then involves risk analysis, risk evaluation, risk control and finally risk avoidance.

The knowledge and expertise of our regulatory team is unmatched in our region. Our lawyers are often asked to draft or amend laws and have excellent relationships with regulators. This means that we are ideally placed to advise on the law, legal interpretation and the approach taken by regulators in securing compliance at both federal and local levels.

Helping clients achieve good commercial outcomes

Our clients choose us because we help them achieve good commercial outcomes. The benefits of our approach are widespread: from saving our clients business costs to avoiding possible operating licence suspensions and withdrawals. By achieving good regulatory compliance and benchmarking, our clients enjoy enhanced commercial reputation and protection of their corporate brand.

Our clear understanding of regulatory issues and excellent relationships with regulators across the ten jurisdictions we operate in means that we help clients avoid regulatory investigations and court appearances, along with the associated fines and legal costs. We also help clients avoid personal liability for breach of penal laws, which can result in imprisonment of directors and managers.
