Dr. Hassan Ali Radhi founded the office in 1974, under the name “Hassan Radhi Law Office-Attorneys and Legal Consultants.” At that time, the office had only one advocate–Dr. Hassan Radhi himself. At the beginning, the office’s activities were purely local in nature, but soon began to cross international borders in view of the understanding of the need to open new professional and geographical horizons for the office. Shortly thereafter the office’s clients began to soar, and the office had the opportunity to benefit from the experience of international foreign firms located in Bahrain. Therefore, Hassan Radhi Law Office associated itself with the renowned U.S. legal firm at that time, Coudert Brothers, and both established an international business firm in the name of “Coudert Brothers in Association with Hassan Radhi”. This office specialized in business activities of international nature and multi-laws. The association continued for nearly eight years.
The office capitalized on the accumulated experience gained by it in international business, expanded, and soon began to specialize in commercial laws, particularly banking and insurance, using English language as the main language for business in these areas. Expansion and development have continued ever since, and the office has not looked back. Within a few years, Hassan Radhi Law Office topped the list of the most reputable and leading law firms in Bahrain and in the Gulf region.
With the addition of partners, the office changed its name to “Hassan Radhi and Associates-Attorneys and Legal Consultants” in 1994. Dr. Hassan Ali Radhi, Ms. Noor Hassan Radhi, Mr. Sayed Jaffer Mohammed, Mr. Abdul Jalil Al Aradi, Ms. Noora Janahi, Mr. Sayed Mohsin Al-Alawi, Ms. Fatima AlAli, Mr. Sayed Hassan AlNawah and Mr. Qassim AlFardan are the Firm’s partners. The number of attorneys presently working at the office, including the partners, is 17, apart from the trainee lawyers, paralegals and articled clerks. From the Bahraini perspective, this is a large number, thus enabling the Firm to be a leader in terms of number of lawyers besides its technical and administrative staff who comprise 8.
Hassan Radhi & Associates renders legal consultancy and advice on all facets of Bahraini laws to national and international clients.
