Merge Big – CLOUT’s History

A discussion arose one day in London some years back, and through that the idea of combining the expertise of two renowned legal firms with years’ worth of reliable, unmatched and successful expertise came to life. The aim and sole goal of this combination was to offer leading regional and international legal services to a diverse client base. From that merger, this new entity would build success by identifying opportunities and risks within a foreign environment, taking into account the unique aspects of international and regional law. The two original firms that merged were both established over 40 years ago, an extensive period that had allowed both companies to develop strong client bonds through exceptional performance and service.

The roots of the personal and professional relationship between the founding organizations, Nassar & Partners Law firm and the Law & Arbitration Centre stretches back to 1980, where the founders of each, Mr. Abdallah Nassar Othman & Dr Hamzah Ahmad Haddad were adversaries in one of the largest legal claims in Jordan. They went on to build reputable Law firms individually, each achieving sustained success lasting over 70 years, with both businesses amassing vast experience along the way.

Sometimes, life makes things happen for a reason, and CLOUT has its roots in one such incident. Mr. Ahmad H. Haddad and Ayham A. Othman, the eldest sons of the founders, found themselves together in a classroom at one of London’s Universities. This resulted in a brainstorming session between the two, as they discussed the creation of a well-established modern legal firm in the business hub of the Middle East.
