AMJ won two prestigious legal awards at the International Financial Law Review (IFLR) Middle East Awards at Dubai’s Burj Al Arab on October 18. AMJ won both the ‘Oman Law Firm of the Year’ for the seventh year in a row, and the ‘Domestic Deal of the Year’ award for its work on a merger between the International Petroleum Investment Company and Mubadala Development Company.

The annual IFLR Awards, now in its 12th year, brings together leading global and regional corporate law firms to celebrate the most outstanding legal deals that have taken place in the region in the preceding 12 months. The Awards recognise the best law firms in each jurisdiction based on performance in business law, finance, capital markets and M & A. Winners are selected based on innovation and the complexity of deals completed.

In addition to these two awards, AMJ was shortlisted alongside the GCC’s top, global law firms for advising the Government of Oman on its US$ 2 billion international sukuk issuance, and on the landmark merger between Falcon Insurance/Arabia Insurance merger earlier this year.

AMJ’s founder and managing partner, Mansoor Jamal Malik commenting on the awards said, “We are delighted with our success at the IFLR awards. In an increasingly competitive market for legal services, these independent research-based awards are an important benchmark of performance. They also highlight the resilience of the Omani government and business community in adopting bold and creative approaches to structuring deals in order to deliver key projects despite the tough market conditions of the past few years.”
