Lisa Heath

Senior Associate

I have a general corporate/commercial background with over 15 years’ legal experience.

I have advised a wide range of clients in Kuwait, over a breadth of matters, including business acquisitions, bond issues, agencies, franchises and distributorships, joint ventures, works subcontracts, service and supply contracts, software licensing agreements and general banking, trading and corporate compliance issues. My clients included local banks and companies and I was also involved in trans-border transactions and bids for large public/private infrastructure projects in Kuwait involving international companies and law firms requiring local Kuwait advice.

I have also worked in-house as legal counsel and senior counsel respectively, for two leading multi-national group companies based in Kuwait, with diverse interests in the MENA region and beyond, the first including interests in engineering, construction, oil and gas, telecommunications, aviation, defence, automotive, hospitality, healthcare, general trading and distributorships and the second being an international retail franchise operator, with approximately ninety of the world’s leading food, fashion, beauty, leisure and entertainment, hospitality, pharmacy and homewares brands.
