Firm Description:

Ali Sharif Zu’bi Advocates & Legal Consultants is the premier law firm of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
We were founded in 1921 by the late Sharif Ali Zu’bi as a boutique firm located in Nazareth, Palestine. Throughout our century-long history, we have built an exceptional track record that is unparalleled across the region. Today, we are recognised as the law firm of choice and the entrusted partner for the most significant and complex matters, in Jordan and the Middle East.

We offer a full range of quality legal services and our highly regarded capabilities extend to virtually all areas of practice, including corporate, commercial, banking, finance, regulatory, litigation, and arbitration matters. We have particular strength in foreign investments, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, government and infrastructure projects, project finance, privatization, PPPs, as well as enforcements of foreign judgments and arbitral awards.

Outstanding client service is our priority. We are renowned for our comprehensive understanding of our region’s dynamic legal landscape and our clients’ evolving businesses. Our substantial involvement and extensive experience in complex, cross-border matters enable us to render tailored, high-quality service to all our clients. Each client consistently receives our best resources, attention, and service.

We take pride in the exceptional talent and calibre of our attorneys. Our attorneys collaborate across practices and specialities to seamlessly provide superior service to our clients. Our committed and sophisticated partners have earned various accolades for shaping many of the most significant legal matters in Jordan, and continuously pass on their knowledge and expertise to our associates. Our dedication to ongoing legal education and training, supervision, peer review, and quality creates a forward-thinking environment that benefits each of our clients.

We are well positioned to support our clients with matters across the Middle Eastern region. As example, with the establishment of our Iraqi practice in 2003, we have drawn upon our unique contacts and deep understanding of the Middle East region to effectively advise our clients on foreign investments and financing initiatives across a broad range of industries in Iraq.

As we embark on our second century of partnership, we remain committed to our founding values: superior service and unrivalled counsel to our clients.
