Our Legal business Line is under the name of Smart Law. We aim to be a leading global law firm, through building strong and long-term corporate and individual relationships with key companies and organizations to ensure their commitment for choosing us in their most important and challenging circumstances.
The Legal business line was established in the late 1970’s to handle Munir Sukhtian Group of companies' legal needs. Over the years, the department has progressed and enhanced its knowledge and services, in line with the group's business activities. It continuously focuses on keeping up-to-date with the latest developments regarding legislation and international and bilateral agreements; especially those about intellectual property rights, commercial and industrial rights and trade agreements.
Today, with the extensive experience accrued, we have grown to service a large global client base beyond the Group. We believe that our partnership approach with our clients is the key to our success; their interest is ours.
Doing this requires a constant focus on our client, a deep understanding of our markets, globally minded and committed people and responsibility and integrity in the way we interact with our business and manage our communities.
