Saudi Arabia has attracted investment from companies of all sizes—from closely-held companies to multinational conglomerates in the energy, defense, healthcare, finance and other sectors. What these companies have in common is a plethora of business opportunities, government contracts and widespread demand for goods and services.

At the same time, doing business in Saudi Arabia can be riddled with challenges, including laws in a constant state of flux, the lack of binding judicial precedent and key regulations that remain unpublished. These challenges highlight the need for a clear guide that explains Saudi law not only as it is written, but also as it is applied. This need is fulfilled in the present volume.

Beginning with a general introduction to Islamic law (Shari‘a), this Legal Guide outlines the many legal aspects of doing business in Saudi Arabia, from trade, agency and distribution to government tenders and procurement, labor law, mergers and acquisitions. The book, providing an overview of laws such as tax and privacy regulations applicable to all companies, concludes with a discussion of arbitration, litigation and other forms of dispute resolution available in Saudi Arabia.


“This Legal Guide is the essential vade mecum for any foreign investor in Saudi Arabia. I strongly commend this book to all with interest in any form of commercial engagement with the Middle East’s most significant economy.”
Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles
Ambassador of the United Kingdom to Saudi Arabia (2003-2007)

“This guide will prove useful to lawyers who are new to Saudi Arabia, seasoned practitioners and in-house counsel and managers of companies doing business in Saudi Arabia. I ardently recommend this authoritative Legal Guide.”
Eng. Saleh Ahmad Hefni
Al Ahli Takaful Company, Deputy Chairman
