Meyer Reumann Legal Consultancy in Abu Dhabi & Dubai UAE Directory
In 1981/82, after a maritime career and after studying and practicing law for 5 years in Hamburg, Rolf Meyer-Reumann drafted maritime rules and regulations for the Saudi Ports Authority. This turned out to be the starting point for a permanent engagement in the Middle East. 1982 he started the co-operation with a Saudi law firm in Jeddah, which 1985 was extended to Riyadh. In 1988 he decided to expand his activities to the entire Gulf. Early 1989, he obtained from the Ruler of Dubai a professional license as legal consultant without a local sponsor. He opened Meyer-Reumann Legal Consultancy (MRLC) in November 1989 at its present location in the Dubai World Trade Centre. Mrs. Elena Schildgen became a Partner of MRLC in 1995, followed by Mr. Oliver Spierling in 2000 and Mrs Sabine Rass in January 2004. The Saudi activities continued in co-operation with Saudi partners, which since 1998 are taken care of by the Saudi Section in the Office in Dubai. In October 1994, a second office of MRLC was opened in Abu Dhabi. Since May 1996 Mr. Meyer-Reumann has been visiting Iraq on a regular basis, and in November 1999 MRLC associated with the Iraqi Law Office Auss M. Younis in Baghdad, which 2005 was taken over by Mrs. Hadeel Al Hassan. In 2006, together with Mrs Hadeel Al Hassan, a new office operating in association with MRLC was opened in Erbil, Kurdistan. In 1999, the Dubai Office took over the responsibilities of all Gulf Activities. Meanwhile, Meyer-Reumann Legal Consultancy is extending its services to 14 countries, covering almost the entire Middle East and beyond: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan, Yemen, Syria, Egypt and Sudan. Since the very beginning in the early 80ies an internal legal databank was build up, which is permanently used, extended and improved by all lawyers and maintained by two in-house programmers to safeguard a high standard of MRLC’s legal services. The scope of service was extended by forming the service company Sesam Business Consultants in October 1998 in Dubai and soon thereafter in Abu Dhabi and Baghdad. Sesam is providing non legal services to Clients supporting them in setting up their business in the Region and in their day to day problems. Sesam has the local knowledge and takes over outsourced works (e.g. project related business support, bookkeeping, P.R.O works, seminars, one to one meetings etc.). Sesam is serving as a bridge for German / European / UAE business connections in general and in both directions and may rely on the experience of MRLC in the Gulf since the early 80ies.
