Trowers & Hamlins sponsor Outlook Oman Event

International law firm Trowers & Hamlins was delighted to sponsor the Outlook Oman event held under the Esteemed Patronage of H.E. Dr Ali Al Sunaidy, Minister of Commerce and Industry, at the Shangri-La Hotel in Muscat on 24 October 2016.

As a Bronze sponsor, the firm wanted to work with MEED on the event to drive forward opportunities and economic and social progress in Oman.

Discussions focused on the need for the public and private sector to work together in areas such as privatisation and public private finance to further development in Oman. Peter Greatrex, a Real Estate partner at Trowers & Hamlins and an expert in PPP Projects around the MENA region, was a panelist on the Investors Panel. Peter said:

"Trowers & Hamlins is delighted to sponsor the Outlook Oman event. The event was a success in bringing together key individuals and decision makers in both the public and private sectors, all focused and with the aim of seizing the opportunities available to Oman at this time.

As a leading international law firm with expertise in complex pathfinder PPP projects, it is important that we continue to advise clients about cross sector view points on public private finance models that are attractive to both the public sector and prospective investors, while providing a fair and appropriate risk allocation.

With the expected developments in the PPP legal framework in Oman and the creation of a single central unit within the Government of Oman for the delivery of PPP projects, this is an extremely interesting time and we look forward to advising our clients on the opportunities that lie ahead."
