The Middle East. Spanning two continents, the cultural, political and economic significance of the region resonates through our shared global history.

The Middle East. Spanning two continents, the cultural, political and economic significance of the region resonates through our shared global history. Today you are as likely to find technological innovation, banking and tourism alongside the extraordinary natural resources for which the Middle East is well known.

At Mishcon de Reya, we are proud to serve an international community of clients. Based in London, our work is often cross-border and complex. It is for these reasons we have created this site as a resource for our clients and friends across the Middle East – at once celebrating the region and the its varied nations and sharing information and knowledge that will have an impact on those living and working in the Middle East.

From top quality independent editorial to collaborations with law firmcommunications and lifestyle partners, we will bring you interesting and relevant content that examines the role of the Middle East in the global community.

And we’d love to hear from you. If you’d like to get involved with the site, please contact us.
