Legal and Commercial Support

Inarak Consultants are legal professionals, helping businesses with their commercial operations


We are lawyers qualified in England with expertise covering transactions in the UK and also the developing world.


In the developing markets, we focus on the Asia Pacific, and the Middle East, though our professionals have a depth of experience in other regions also, for example Africa


Our work covers the whole life-cycle of a business, including:


  • market research and due diligence

  • setting up a new business entity, and advising on the most appropriate business vehicle for your purposes

  • advice on law and regulation in the relevant market

  • negotiating collaboration and teaming arrangements, and joint venture contracts

  • the sale and purchase of assets and/or shares in a target company


In a number of overseas markets, Inarak has affiliation with leading local legal counsel, and the company is therefore able to provide its client with a seamless, high quality work product, at a manageable cost

Our lawyers have the skill-sets and depth of experience of lead counsel in any major law firm, but given our low overheads our fees are always a fraction of the typical fees of a major firm

We are very competitive in both our fees levels, as well as our fees arrangements with our clients. If necessary, we can agree our fees as a fixed amount, to stay well within your budget.

Testimonials

 

"I have had the pleasure of working with Edward during the period 2010/2013, when I was heading the Legal department of Petroleum Development Oman LLC in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman. I have found him to be a consummate professional, with a thorough knowledge of the law and extensive experience with major contracts, tender procedures and construction claims and contract disputes. This combination of experience as a contract and construction lawyer proved to be very valuable in handling the extensive procurement activity of the company as well as several construction claims and disputes. The scope of the work was huge, ranging from advising on tender documentation to the negotiation of terms and conditions for multi-billion USD contracts and to the in-depth analysis and resolution of very significant construction claims. Edward also advised on a wide range of non-contract & procurement matters, drawing from his vast experience and expertise in different fields of the law."
