About Us

Who we are

On 6 November 2016, Abuhimed Alsheikh Alhagbani Law Firm (AS&H) entered into a co-operation agreement with Clifford Chance to deliver world class legal services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The new co-operation replaced the stand-alone Clifford Chance law firm that was licensed in 2013 by the Saudi Ministry of Commerce and Investment.

AS&H has been formed by three past members of Clifford Chance's talented and widely recognised senior cohort of Saudi lawyers: Majid Al-Sheikh and Mansoor AlHagbani, along with Dr. Fahad Abuhimed, most recently a deputy minister at the Ministry of Commerce and Investment. Dr. Fahad is an alumnus of Al-Jadaan & Partners Law Firm, Clifford Chance's former Saudi association firm, and previously spent a year on secondment to Clifford Chance.

AS&H in co-operation with Clifford Chance has eight partners (of whom three are seconded from Clifford Chance), more than any other law firm in the Kingdom, offering Saudi and international clients the greatest depth of top Saudi and internationally qualified foreign lawyers as well as continuity and stability.
