1983

New Beginnings

After leaving his home country of Syria, Mr. Maamoun Al Khouli relocated to Dubai, UAE where he planned to start his own practice. An office was established and the legal journey started by specializing in corporate and commercial affairs as a strong advocate focused on litigation in UAE local courts.

1999

Continuous Growth

After 15 years of legal work in the UAE, Mr. Maamoun decided to open a new partnership, branding it Maamoun Al Khouli & Associates. The firm grew to become a multi-disciplinary practice, catering to International law firms, financial institutions, maritime and insurance providers. As a key player in the legal sector, Maamoun Al Khouli & Associates attributed to many wins in the respective markets, offering highly focused and strategic niche market services.

Following In His Footsteps

Completing his LLM from Dickinson’s Law in the USA, Mohamad Al Khouli joined the firm as a Legal Counsel. Seeing the local market and it’s huge potential for success, he began to expand the legal team and the various service offerings. Slow over time, Mohamad grew the firm to offer a full spectrum of legal services within the civil, commercial and criminal sectors, with a specialization in litigation.

The Family Grew

After graduating with her LLM from Dickinson’s Law in the USA, Lama Al Khouli joined the family business and started her legal career. Wanting to follow in her father’s legacy, she worked alongside Mr. Maamoun and Mohamad, constantly learning and growing from his years of legal experience.
