He advises international and domestic corporates, financial institutions, and governmental agencies on financings and corporate and commercial matters spanning the financial services, oil and gas, private equity and manufacturing sectors. Before moving to Bahrain, Ronald previously practiced in the Cayman Islands with Maples and Calder, and prior to that in London with Ashurst.

Ahmed Al Doseri is a leading TMT expert, with particular expertise in cyber legislation, electronic transactions, telecoms regulation, cloud computing, and data protection. Ahmed has over 25 years’ experience in IT and telecoms and led the development of many technical regulations and laws in Bahrain. He is regularly called upon to advise government agencies and regulatory bodies and holds a dual specialisation as a systems engineer and as a licensed lawyer. Ahmed’s clients include international cloud computing providers, media and publishing platforms, software developers, Internet exchanges, cryptocurrency platforms, and licensed telecoms operators.

Saad Al Doseri is a leading lawyer in the region and head of the firm’s Arbitration, Litigation, and Dispute Resolution practice. Throughout his career, Saad represented clients from a multitude of market verticals and specialisations, and forged strong working relations across the market. He has extensive experience advising clients across a range of disputes, including in complex investment disputes, commercial, civil, criminal and employment matters, and he also has audience at the Court of Cassation and the Constitutional Court.

His clients include corporate and investment banking institutions, family-owned businesses, and international corporate clients operating in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Saad Al Doseri is a qualified sole mediator and is regularly appointed as an arbitrator before the Bahrain Chamber for Dispute Resolution, the GCC Commercial Arbitration Center, and the ICC. Prior to setting up the firm, Saad worked at Haya Rashed Al Khalifa and then joined Al Tamimi & Company in Bahrain and successfully contributed the firm’s establishment there. Prior to practicing law, Saad Al Doseri served as a Captain in the Royal Army of the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Commenting on his appointment, Ronald said: “I am delighted to be joining Al Doseri Law at this exciting time. Despite the pandemic, we anticipate increased interest and investment in Bahrain and the GCC from international institutions and corporates committed to doing business in the region.

IT and telecommunications is a fast growing sector in Bahrain, and our clients in this sector certainly appreciate having someone who understands their highly technical requirements,” said Ahmed Al Doseri. “I look forward working with the firm in my new role to grow our offering here.

Referring to his firm’s growth, Saad said: “Organic, considered growth is central to our firm’s strategy. The appointments of Ronald and Ahmed signals to the market our position as a specialist law firm building a strong future.” He continued, “In addition to banking and finance and TMT, dispute resolution forms one of the core pillars in our firm’s offering and Bahrain continues to be the key forum to resolve disputes for both domestic and international firms.
