Jahanzaib Durrani

Advocate High Court

I have been practicing law in Pakistan for over 10 years now.ย  Early on in my professional career, I had an opportunity to work on the famous case of Reko Dik mines. This is where I experienced the acute shortage of world-class legal expertise in niche areas in the Pakistani market. While there is an abundance of generalist lawyers, there’s a shortage of experts, especially in natural resources law, international investment law and international arbitration.

Therefore, after a few years of practicing in a firm of commercial lawyers, I went on to pursue two LLMs: my first LLM wasย  in Oil, Gas, and Mining Law from Nottingham Law School, UK while the second one was in International Financial Law from King’s College London.

In 2018, after returning to Pakistan, I set up an independent practice which was focused on civil and corporate commercial matters. I represented various clients before various forums in anti-dumping matters and advised mergers and acquisitions. I also have experience in taxation and construction matters involving FIDIC agreements. I regularly provide legal advise to the Balochistan Board of Investment and Trade.

In 2020, in recognition for my expertise and knowledge in natural resources law, the Government of Pakistan appointed me as an Independent Director on the Board of Saindak Metals (Pvt.) Limited. In 2021, I received a similar appointment in Oil and Gas Development Company Limited.ย 

Most law firms in Pakistan are based on the brilliance and fame of a single lawyer who tries to dabble in all areas of law. Instead, our aim at Law and Policy Chambers is to create a work environment where different specialists can achieve excellence in their own respective areas of practice.ย
