Al Yaqout and Al Fouzan Legal Group History

Al Yaqout Legal Group was established by the late Hamed Al Yaqout in 2003. He was a prominent attorney who worked to build a leading reputable corporate law firm. He believed the two most important aspects of corporate legal advisory support were accuracy and promptness.

Legacy

Building on to his father’s legacy, in 2015 Khalifah Al Yaqout took over the firm as managing partner, with the aim of leading Al Yaqout Legal Group to become a key market player in the legal industry, that applies international standards in business and law.

The aim of Al Yaqout Legal Group was to bridge across the gap between Kuwaiti and foreign entities in doing business in Kuwait and abroad.
