Public Projects and PPP Legal Expertise in Saudi Arabia

Offices in Jeddah, Riyadh, and Dammam

Massive investment in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s infrastructure is underway, presenting new opportunities for domestic and foreign-owned companies to participate in the estimated USD $492 billion spending plan over the next 25 years. Needless to say, involvement in public projects of this scale requires robust legal support for understanding public tendering requirements, Public-Private Partnership (PPP) projects, procurement regulations, dispute resolution mechanisms, and other legal matters as well as a review of contracts for such projects.

AlGhazzawi & Partners is well-positioned to provide the legal expertise needed for large-scale government infrastructure works and other projects. Thanks to our long drawn experience of over 50 years and huge knowledge base of the local laws and regulatory frameworks covering public procurement policy, concession arrangements in different areas, real estate expropriation for the public good, and Public-Private Partnerships (PPP), we have been guiding clients in navigating through the maze of regulatory, legal and business processes in a seamless manner.

With a full range of business legal services and a highly experienced team, we have the foresight and relevant insights to help you conduct business in the Kingdom with confidence and increase your chances of success.

We advise private companies in understanding the public tendering and procurement regulations in the Kingdom.

We regularly assist in contract negotiation and drafting, project financing, real estate support, tax issues, employment concerns, dispute resolution, litigation, and other ongoing support for complex legal challenges you may face in public and private-public partnership projects.

For public agencies, we offer legal expertise during tendering processes and in managing their relationship with private partners to execute projects effectively. We can also set up entities for public agencies to undertake development projects.
