Hamad Al Sharji

Having graduated in 1977 from Cairo University with L.L.B Degree in Law, Hamad Al Sharji returned to his country Oman and was offered in early 1978 the important post as the Head of the Secretariat of the Commercial Court in Muscat.  This was a challenging position and in particular at that early stage in the development of the commercial judicial system in Oman.

As the Head of the Secretariat of the said Court, he headed the expatriate legal team of   legal researchers, attended all Court hearings, and tendered legal advice to the President of the Commercial Court and to the appointed Court members.

In appreciation for his dedication and superb services, Royal Decree No. 45/87 was promulgated on June 16, 1987 appointing Hamad Al Sharji as Deputy President of the Commercial Court and thus he became the Presiding Judge of the three Courts of First  Instance which each comprised two other expatriate eminent judges.

On February 17, 1991 he was appointed as the President of the Commercial Court by virtue of Royal Decree No. 17/91 and thus became responsible for the overall functions of the Court in addition to his important judicial role.

As the President of the Commercial Court, Hamad Al Sharji presided over the Commercial Appeal Division as well as the Income Tax Appeal Court and was instrumental in drafting important several laws which were promulgated by Royal Decrees including Oman Arbitration Law No. 47/97. He also presides as the umpire and co-arbitrator in several arbitration proceedings. Hamad Al Sharji is a member of the London Court of International Arbitration and the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris.

At the end of June 1998, and after continuous service extending for over twenty years at the Commercial Court, Hamad Al - Sharji retired to pursue a successful career as a member of the legal profession in order to put to use his wide legal experience to the benefit of his clients.

Peter Mansour

After graduating from Trent Nothingham University in England in 1980 with L.L.B Degree in Law with Honours, Peter Mansour returned to his country Jordan where he joined the chambers of an eminent lawyer in Amman, advocate Samir Jabaji, to do his professional training. This provided him practical skills as well as particular knowledge of Arab laws and litigation procedures before all courts. He subsequently practiced law in Bristol and in the City of London at Lincolin's Inn. Peter Mansour is conversant with English laws and the laws of some other European countries as well as Arab laws.

In 1982, he was appointed the Resident Managing Legal Consultant of the Muscat branch of an international law firm of J. Nassir & Partners. He was able to develop and enlarge the practice and to enhance the standing of the branch as it became a leading law firm in Oman representing several major local and foreign entities.

In 1990, Peter Mansour left Oman to return to his country after being offered a partnership in the prestigious leading law firm of “ Aziz, Fuad & Raja Shehadeh” established since 1936 in the city of Ramallah in Palestine. Through his excellent knowledge of Arab, English and other laws and legal concepts, as well as being fully conversant with both English and Arabic languages, coupled with his vast legal experience, he continued his outstanding performance and achievements in his own country, thus enhanced further the already high fame of the said law firm as a  whole.

In late 1998, after the retirement of H.E. Hamad Al–Sharji from the Presidency of the Commercial Court of Oman, Peter Mansour returned to Muscat to join forces with H.E. by forming together a law partnership in Oman in 1998 known as "Hamad Al Sharji, Peter Mansour & Co., Advocates, Legal Consultants & Arbitrators (Law Partnership)" which is a civil law partnership registered in Oman under Lawyers Law No. 108 /96.
