Trowers & Hamlins strengthens Bahrain team with new recruit
International law firm Trowers & Hamlins has recruited senior associate Unkar Chanian to its market-leading Bahrain real estate team.
Unkar is a UK qualified solicitor and joins from Al Tamimi & Co, where he was their most senior real estate lawyer in Bahrain. He worked for many years in the City of London before relocating to Bahrain in 2014.
Unkar has a wealth of both international and regional experience advising on commercial property, large scale mixed use development and landlord and tenant matters. He has also been involved in a number of aspects of the new real estate regulatory regime in Bahrain, as well as advising private individuals on their property dealings.
Abdul-Haq Mohammed, the head of Trowers & Hamlins' international business said:
"We are delighted to welcome Unkar to the team. Unkar has a well deserved reputation in the market and his recruitment bolsters our position as leaders in Bahrain's real estate sector. I am confident that the experience he has gained while working in Bahrain over recent years will further enhance our offering to our clients as they navigate changing times."
"I am looking forward to working with the team in Bahrain. The landscape for real estate is going through considerable development and I will be using my sector experience to ensure that our clients are fully equipped to take advantage of new opportunities."
