Middle East & Africa

With the opening of its Dubai office, BKL is to date the first Korean law firm to establish a permanent presence in the Middle East. BKL received authorization from the Dubai government to open an office in Dubai in 2015 and our office is located in the Dubai International Financial Center, which is an international financial hub of the Middle East and Africa. Our team of attorneys and foreign attorneys well-versed in international tax, M&A, corporate matters, energy and construction are stationed in our Dubai office to provide our clients legal advice on overseas construction, resources, energy, corporate matters, including the incorporation and operation of corporations and international arbitration.

Our attorneys in the Dubai office work closely with other attorneys and skilled members in our international arbitration team when it comes to cross-border dispute resolution matters. BKL’s Dubai team provides optimal legal services and advice to our clients that made or intend to make their way to the Middle East and Africa with regard to various affairs including international arbitration, management of litigation before local courts, execution of joint venture and technology license agreements, incorporation and operation of a local subsidiary or branch, acquisitions, international tax, construction contract management, and management of various civil claims. Moreover, our attorneys and foreign attorneys are familiar with the local culture and circumstances and, thus, are able to provide comprehensive legal advice and close assistance to foreign companies or investors.

BKL has a pool of the skilled attorneys and foreign attorneys in Dubai. Further, our firm built a close cooperation network with renowned local law firms in most countries of the Middle East. The close work collaboration between BKL and local law firms ensures the maximization of efficiency in handling complex local litigation matters and in advising clients on local laws. Thus, we are able to provide the optimum results for our clients that meet their needs. BKL’s close cooperation network with local law firms and attorneys has made it possible for the firm to provide more convenient and cost-efficient legal services to our clients. For example, BKL’s Dubai team has been able to save legal service costs for, and save valuable time and energy of, our clients by providing custom-fit legal services by attorneys and foreign attorneys familiar with the local culture and language.

Moreover, BKL contributes to the Korean entities’ entry into and stabilization in the Middle East and Africa by providing legal advice to the Korean Embassy in the UAE and the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Dubai. Further, we serve the KOTRA and small and medium-sized enterprises for making their way to the Middle East.
