Speech of the Founder of Mohammad Al-Aqeel & Co
Peace and blessings on Allah and his messenger Muhammed. After more than 15 years of practicing law, I stand here thinking about the stages of professional development and growth that I have gone through. God has truly granted me success in my country and abroad, for which I am eternally grateful. I am convinced of the need to give an opportunity to a lawyer who has invested in himself and absorbed the ethics of the profession and its knowledge. If it were not for the virtue of God and the faith my clients and colleagues have in me, I would not have achieved a small part of what I have accomplished today. It became necessary for me after years of professional growth to alter what was established in my name (Mohammad Abdulaziz Al-Aqeel Law Firm) to an entity that guarantees the stability of high-quality services. Therefore, the transformation of my law Firm to Mohammad Al-Aqeel & Co Law Firm is a show of my own commitment, and continues to be a preference for clients who believe in it. It will be the first step for future extended partnerships that agree with the possibility of seeing local law firms follow the example of their counterparts worldwide, especially in light of the blessed views of our country's leaders in support of everything special that comes from their citizens
May Allah the almighty bestow success upon us
