Mansoor is a UK barrister and recognised expert on Oman’s legislative and regulatory frameworks. His in-depth experience of Omani law and practice in both the contentious and non-contentious fields, gained over 27 years of legal practice in Oman, has won him ‘star performer’ ranking in global legal directories as ‘a tremendous lawyer’ (Chambers 2012) and an ‘exceptional reputation within the market’ (IFLR 2013).
In the dispute resolution arena, Mansoor has expertise in prosecuting and defending high-value domestic and international arbitration of both public and private law disputes under ICSID and UNCITRAL rules before the ICC International Court of Arbitration and the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA). In Oman, he is a Court of Appeal panel arbitrator. Mansoor also handles complex commercial litigation claims across a wide span of industry sectors including banking, power, water, agencies, insurance, employment and oil and gas and enjoys rights of audience before Oman’s Supreme Court. His impressive roster of clients includes major national and international corporates, financing institutions, credit agencies, government entities as well as some of the world’s leading law firms.
In the non-contentious field, Mansoor’s expertise spans all aspects of banking and finance law including Islamic, corporate, project, acquisition, asset and structured finance, securitisation, corporate restructurings, mergers and acquisitions, capital markets, private equity and investment funds. He brings a wealth of experience to bear on behalf of his clients having worked on most of Oman’s large-scale power and water and infrastructure projects since 1996. His close familiarity with the regulatory framework allows him to provide valuable pre-bid advice to developers, lenders and their advisers. Clients also value Mansoor’s strong network of relationships with government and regulatory bodies, industry professionals and the wider business community which gives him a critical advantage in identifying and ironing out any complexity or uncertainty that may arise in structuring, financing and developing large-scale projects in Oman’s evolving legal environment.
Mansoor is regularly invited by Oman’s government and regulatory authorities to review proposed laws and regulations. He is a sought-after speaker and participant at seminars organised by the financial services industry, corporate sector and government entities and a regular contributor to legal and industry journals.
