Meysan Shortlisted for Kuwait Law Firm of the Year

August 19, 2019 – Kuwait City, Kuwait

Meysan Partners was chosen as one of six finalists for the IFLR National Law Firm of the Year for Kuwait award. IFLR (the International Financial Law Review) is a leading European publication that focuses on the financial markets. These annual awards recognize innovative and successful work in the capital markets and in finance.

This is not the first honour received by Meysan from IFLR. In 2018, Meysan was one of only thirty-one law firms worldwide to be named in IFLR 1000’s Firms to Watch – an exclusive list of the top financial law firms making headlines for breaking into new markets, expansion, increased market share and innovation. Meysan was the only law firm chosen from the Arab world. IFLR identified the firm as a market leader in Islamic finance and Mergers and Acquisitions. In conferring the award, IFLR said: “All firms who are selected for Firms to Watch share ambition, and a strategy to develop which has proven successful in the short-term and bodes well for the near future.

Meysan’s Senior Partner, Bader El-Jeaan, was also named Regional Managing Partner

In making its award, IFLR praised the achievements made by Meysan, stating, “The firm was The Rising Star Law Firm of the Year in 2015 and has since entrenched itself at the top of the Kuwaiti market. New law firms seldom make this sort of splash in any of the Middle East markets, and Meysan stands as an example that it can be done

Meysan’s Senior Partner, Bader El-Jeaan, said: “This has been a fantastic year for Meysan in terms of industry recognition for the success of our growth strategy and our commitment to innovation in client service. To be singled out for praise by IFLR amongst so few firms demonstrates the quality of our people, and this recognition reflects on the hard work accomplished by all of our lawyers.
