  • COVID-19 ("Corona Virus"), Working Remotely & Bankruptcy Law

    First and foremost, to those reading this blog entry, I hope that you and yours are well.

    In the wake of the global outbreak of COVID-19 (the "Corona Virus") and associated restrictions on travel and assembly, I thought it pertinent to pen this brief note.

    In addition to personal concerns associated with the global pandemic and sensible precautions being taken to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus, business considerations impacting the economy at nearly every level (local, national and international) - from the consumption of/ demand for energy, to the production of goods (including basic necessities) and disruption of supply chains and wholesale distribution of finished products, to price volatility, to debt maintenance, to personnel matters, to government policy/ action and the suspension of some governmental services, to the accessibility of medical care, to the availability of professional services and more - will vex companies great and small and give rise to a variety of legal questions.

    (As an aside, current events have prompted me to explore the possibility of opening a US federal bankruptcy practice area.)

    Pandemics are paralyzing.  But, human beings are a resilient species and we will endure.

    Many companies, including law firms, are exploring "telework" (or, working remotely) to mitigate the disruption of their capabilities that sensible precautions designed to halt the spread of the Corona Virus have produced.

    If there are upsides to every crisis, one of them in the instant matter may be an accelerated trend toward working remotely.  Communications technologies are increasingly amazing, improving exponentially in recent times.  The use of them can accentuate several efficiencies.

    I have made use of these technologies for quite a while, working remotely from the United States with the Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (KSA) office, as well as other service providers in the United Arab Emirates and elsewhere, for years.  Keeping close touch with clients, associates and third parties via email, Skype and the like has been standard operating procedure under my practice's business model.

    While precautions taken to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus and the associated work-arounds do not yet seem to have generated a rise in the price of tech stocks, I can say one thing with confidence:   we're still here (wherever "here" is) for you.  The Jeddah, KSA team and I have had no cause to change our interactions and the work flow is as smooth as always.  And, of course, clients and third parties can continue to avail themselves of the tech tools we employ - we've been utilizing these tools for a long time, and do not anticipate any hiccups.

    The telephone number and reception email are clearly displayed on the website, and my Skype is available upon request (I stopped bothering with a fax line some time ago).  Reach out if you think we can help - especially if your company is experiencing difficulties with contractual obligations related to doing business in Saudi Arabia.

  • Investing in Saudi Arabia

    Jason Huf has, for almost 20 years, centered the focus of his professional work on the Middle East.  Furthering economic development, including and especially increased Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), have been helpful in generating conditions giving rise to a broader, more self-sustaining, increasingly cosmopolitan - but still an authentically Arab and Islamic - middle class in the Gulf region.  The associated societal changes have been fundamental to addressing dynamics that need to be addressed if the exciting Vision 2030 reforms initiated by the Saudi Crown Prince, HRH Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz al Saud are to fully succeed.

    Some of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's (KSA) domestic problems have, in the past, become problems that impact the United States and other parts of the world.  Mr. Huf is proud that his work and the work of other Business Law practitioners in the region have constituted a small piece of a small piece of a tremendous puzzle, the resolution of which can be of significant benefit to our ever-shrinking global village.

    But there are other, more immediately practical, reasons to invest in Saudi Arabia.  Mr. Firoz Mohammed, our Senior Legal Consultant in Jeddah - a city in the Western Province (an economic designation, not a political governate) and the center of non-Oil related economic activity and development in the KSA - has written about some of the reasons why now might be a good time to invest there:



    Firoz has also written about the basics of FDI and how a foreign company would go about investing in the KSA:



    With well-trained, experienced professionals in both the USA & KSA, JHI's attorneys are well placed to assist American companies with transactional business law matters in the KSA, including franchising, construction and banking, as well as disputes arising from business dealings in the Kingdom (litigation in Saudi courts, hearings before local administrative boards or international arbitration).  

    Contact JHI for more information on how we can help your company to explore - and expand - the boundaries of your business.
