Our Story

ICLO was created in 2014 in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi by Founding Partner, Ghanem Al Hajeri and Managing Partner, Hassan Saeed Abaragh.  In 2021 a successful merger with Dubai based law firm ‘Saleh Alobeidli Advocates & Legal Consultants’ re-invigorated ICLO as a premier UAE law firm with a new vision and a mission for the future. 

ICLO is a fully licensed law firm in UAE with rights of audience before the UAE courts.

Traditionally known for its experience with complex corporate/commercial structuring, strong capabilities with regulatory matters, skillset in crafting complex joint venture deals, representing Arbitrations & Litigation matters in most courts and tribunals, it is now known as the premier law firm in the Middle East for “Sports Law” expertise and the first local UAE law firm to create a department focussed on “Startups & SMEs” with a vision to contribute towards developing the entrepreneurial fabric of the UAE economy.
