Our Muscat office, centrally located in Qurum, is the only licensed American law firm in Oman. Established in 1997, the Curtis Oman office advises both private- and public-sector clients, including various ministries and related entities, on a full range of international and domestic legal matters. The core practice areas of infrastructure, project finance and privatization are complemented by experience in banking, energy, arbitration, insurance, shipping and port development, tourism, real estate, employment, public procurement, corporate, and commercial law, among other areas.
Curtis has been lead adviser on some of the largest and most significant projects in Oman, and is regularly recognized as one of the country's foremost law firms. In the latest edition of its Europe, Middle East and Africa guide, Legal 500 identified our firm as a leading legal service provider in Oman. Curtis and our Muscat-based lawyers were recognized for our extensive experience in the areas of banking and finance, corporate and mergers and acquisitions, projects and energy, and shipping.
Our firm has created a Curtis Oman blog for clients, which provides thorough commentary on and analysis of recent legal developments in Oman. Maintained by our Muscat-based team of lawyers, the regularly updated blog explores legal issues ranging from infrastructure development to intellectual property. We also have served as reviser for Martindale-Hubbell's Oman Digest each year since 2007. The annually updated publication summarizes Omani laws and regulations, including any recent changes or developments.
To ensure a consistently high level of service and the full benefit of our resources and global reach, we utilize an integrated team approach across offices and practices. The Muscat office is a part of Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP, a New York limited liability partnership.
