  • Eid Al Adha, Labor Day & Observance of the Anniversary of September 11

    JHI wishes our many friends in the Muslim world a happy Eid Al Adha holiday. To those able to perform Hajj rites, congratulations.  We would also like to advise clients and friends who do not observe this holiday to expect delays in certain services due to office closures - particularly banks and government offices - throughout the Middle East region during the holiday, which is scheduled to begin at sundown on Friday, September 1, 2017.
    In the United States, to all those who labor, have a happy Labor Day weekend. JHI will keep its doors closed until Tuesday, September 5. In the case of urgent matters, Mr. Huf will be available remotely during the weekend, including Monday, September 4.

    JHI ordinarily issues bills for professional services rendered during the previous month on the first business day of the following month. However, for only the second time in the Firm's history thus far, we will issue August's invoices on the second business day of the month (in this instance, September 5).

    Liberty Tower - World Trade Center (WTC), NYC, NY, USA   [ Never Forget:  Liberty ALWAYS Rises ]

    Per Firm custom, at 5:00pm on Thursday, September 7, JHI's NYC HQ will close again, this time in observance of the anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks on our country. We will reopen our doors on Tuesday, September 12.
    On September 11, we honor and remember those loved ones and fellow countrymen lost to sudden and senseless evil. But, there is never a day wherein we forget.

    The best way to honor them, especially in New York - the greatest city in the world, is to LIVE (in every sense of the word). To that end, coming soon, we will publish Mr. Huf's report on a productive and enjoyable summer (well, really, a very good year thus far it seems) as part of our Work-Life Balance series. This will be followed by a note on the famously "tax-free" United Arab Emirates' imposition of a tax scheme, including a Value Added Tax and certain Excise Taxes. We also plan, in the very near future, to introduce JHI's new Youtube channel; and, provide on update on EB-5 (Investor) Visas & legal services related to applications for such.

    Mr. Huf at Madain Saleh, Hijaz, Saudi Arabia  (Another day at the office... Exploring the Boundaries of Your Business)

    Watch this space. In the meantime, whatever you are celebrating and/ or observing over the next two weeks as summer comes to a close, we hope that it is meaningful and that you and your families enjoy it.
  • There's More to Doha than Soccer

    Stories concerning the 2022 World Cup tournament seem to have taken all the oxygen out of news and information about Qatar.  True, Doha is scheduled to be the first Arab state to host the world's largest soccer tournament, and this promises to generate something of an increase to the country's construction boom.  But, there's more to this small, wealthy Gulf state than sports.

    Businesses, whether they be engineering firms, banks, energy companies, franchisors, purveyors of luxury items or manufacturers of fast-moving consumer goods, might be interested to know that Qatar is the world's third largest producer of natural gas and has a legal and regulatory enviroment wherein compliance is relatively inexpensive.  With the highest GDP per capita in the world, Qatar's consumer base is awash in disposable wealth and opportunities abound.

    As a law firm, JHI takes particular notice of Qatar's bifurcated legal system.  The civil courts there are completely separate from and independent of the Shari'ah courts, and the rest of the government generally.  These separate courts that deal with matters relating to foreign commercial interests provide a level of transparancy and predictability for which Gulf-Arab jurisdictions, fairly or unfairly, do not always have a reputation.  This, in turn, provides an additional layer of security to companies that expand into, or otherwise invest in, Qatar.

    Conduct your own economic survey and have accounting crunch the numbers and provide you with the tax implications of such a venture.  Then, if satisfied (or, excited), contact an experienced law firm and ask them to provide you with a legal and regulatory survey.

    Take a look at Doha beyond the glamour of sports and see if you would like to Explore the Boundaries of Your Business.

  • Kuwait's New Commercial Licenses Law Aims to Diversify Economy

    Irrespective of generally good relations with Western countries, Kuwait is rarely mentioned by Western companies looking to expand into the GCC region.  While the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have attracted billions of dollars worth of Foreign Investment capital over the last 10 years, oil rich Kuwait has quietly relied on its most famous resource for economic growth.

    This could change, however, with the implementation of Kuwait’s new Commercial Licenses Law.  Not traditionally seen by potential foreign investors as one of the more “business friendly” Gulf States, the new law consolidates the function of approving applications for commercial licenses into a single government office.

    Kuwait is awash in disposable income and should be an attractive target for businesses looking for an expansion opportunity.  Simplifying the application process for commercial licenses is a step in the right direction.  And, JHI will continue to keep abreast of legal developments impacting Kuwait’s business environment.
  • JHI Establishes Office in Saudi Arabia

    The law firm of Jason Huf International, pc (JHI) is proud to announce our expansion into Jeddah, Saudi Arabia through the formation of an Associated Firms relationship with the Khalil Khazindar Law Firm.  The addition of a Jeddah office provides JHI's clients with reliable, experienced and ethical assistance "on the ground" in Saudi Arabia.

    Further, the strategic alliance between Mr. Huf and Mr. Khazindar offers a powerful combination from which our clients can draw upon.  Their total experience in the Gulf region, ethical approach to the practice of law and jointly held passion for crafting tailor-made legal solutions present a real opportunity for their clients with matters in the Middle East.

    Mr. Huf and Mr. Khazindar share a commitment to extending to each and every corporate client - regardless of size - the kind of personalized attention your company expects and deserves.  Accordingly, we are well-positioned to assist US companies looking to do business in Saudi Arabia.
