Reham Al Barakat
Corporate Trainee Lawyer

Reham is an Omani national, who has graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2019 with a Bachelor in Laws degree.

During her university years, Reham has undergone a summer legal internship program at a SA Legal Legal Advocacy & Consultancy where she has worked with both the litigation and corporate departments. Her work with the corporate department involved contract negotiations with clients, registering new companies and company due diligence. Whereas work in the litigation department included coordinating and following up with relevant authorities, drafting pleadings and managing case files. Her role involved addressing the Ministry of Manpower as the preliminary phase prior to litigation, to settle cases in relation to labor disputes, in which a majority of the disputes were related to wrongful termination and passport retention by employers. Her internship heavily relied on conducting legal research and preparing documentations for both departments.

Reham is currently a trainee lawyer in the corporate department, where she assists in drafting and reviewing different types of commercial contracts. She also handles rent cases as part of the A&CO alternative dispute resolution department wherein she attends client meetings, negotiates settlements, and drafts pertinent agreements. Reham also undertakes legal research at A&CO Law where she proved the capability of establishing herself as an epitome in legal research to the level of seniority. She is fluent in both Arabic and English.
