Who We Are
Al Busaidy Mansoor Jamal & Co (AMJ) is a leading, commercial law practice based in the heart of Muscat’s business and financial district. As the Sultanate of Oman has developed and prospered, so the Firm has evolved over the past 35 years into Oman’s largest legal practice, top-ranked for its work in banking and finance, corporate/commercial and dispute resolution work. We have a track record of delivering high quality legal services on both domestic and cross-border transactions to international and leading local corporates, financial institutions, private individuals, and government.
AMJ’s talented and dedicated staff comprises more than 50 resident international and Omani lawyers and support professionals working in teams led by partners, Mansoor Jamal Malik, Dr Said Hilall Al Busaidy, Ardeshir Patel, Ahmed Hashim and Marcus Pery. Our lawyers come from a variety of jurisdictions around the world including the USA, UK, New Zealand, South Africa, Egypt, Sudan, Iraq, Pakistan and India. Complementing this international expertise, is a sizeable contingent of qualified Omani lawyers, including four licensed Court of Appeal advocates, whom the Firm has nurtured and over a period of years.
Our clients trust us for our wealth of knowledge of local law and practice, our unrivalled Arabic language capabilities and our specialist expertise. Many of our lawyers have been with the Firm for a decade or more and have honed their skills in the high-value headlining projects and landmark legal developments that have shaped key sectors such as energy, power and privatisation and Oman’s business and financial environment. Although many of them have a specialist focus, our collaborative team structure ensures that the expertise of the Firm as a whole is available to meet the requirements of any transaction or case.
Mansoor Jamal Malik, Managing Partner of the firm, has been the driving force that has transformed AMJ from a small boutique practice in 1979 into the full service law firm that it today. Along with former Vice President of the Oman High Court, Dr Said Al Busaidy, England and Wales and Bombay-qualified solicitor Ardeshir Patel and the other lawyers and staff, the firm is poised for further growth under-pinned by a continuing commitment to delivering timely, quality legal advice and assistance to the business community.
