Squire Patton Boggs has been recognised as International Law Firm of the Year at the Qatar Business Law Awards for the third consecutive year. The award was presented at a gala dinner at The St. Regis Hotel in Doha on 12 November 2019, following the fourth annual Qatar Business Law Forum.
The Qatar Business Law Awards sets out to recognise exceptional achievement from within Qatar’s legal community. The International Law Firm of the Year accolade is awarded to the firm demonstrating outstanding legal expertise, innovation, strategic vision, business success and client satisfaction. In confirming the firm’s award, one of the judges commented that “Squire Patton Boggs’ submission this year, once again, exceeds the others in terms of high quality of work, outreach to the community, and professionalism. The firm has demonstrated engagement at the highest level, both in terms of legal services as well as consistent and substantial outreach to the community at large.”
Charbel M. Maakaron, Squire Patton Boggs office managing partner in Doha, said: “We were delighted to win this award for two years running in 2017 and 2018. To be recognised as Qatar’s International Law Firm of the Year a third time, and by such a distinguished panel of judges from Qatar’s business, academic and legal community, is a very special honour indeed. It is a fantastic recognition of the talent, commitment and efforts of our team in Doha.
