By Dr. Souhail Abd Al Karim Al Rustom
It all started with an ambitious dream born in Damascus, my homeland and of my ancestors’; a land that proved to be a fertile, nurturing ground to drive this dream forward. The dream saw the light for the first time in 1960 when I established Al Rustom Law Office; the first milestone in my legal career. The idea of establishing the office stemmed from my firm belief that practicing the legal profession as an individual has become like abandoning the flock & signing off-key, which leaves little space for development.
Hence, the promising idea of joining an elite group of top-tier lawyers to work together under the umbrella of one office came into being. The new comprehensive entity would allow us to share our knowledge and expertise, while providing our clients with outstanding comprehensive legal services. At that time, the goal of establishing a specialized law office was to keep pace with the accelerating progress of business sector and related fields. The vision was to gather a group of skilled lawyers who could offer their services to a wide segment of clientele representing dynamic economic organizations operating in commerce, banking, insurance, industry, and other sectors.
The office has since remarkably developed and became a highly reliable and credible reference renowned for its diligent work and ultimate dedication. This approach resonated positively across all our client segments, especially businessmen and investors searching for a reputable, reliable law office that will form a safety net while developing their investments as per the laws and regulations.
Our success immediately set the stage for us to become Syria’s leading law office, especially that I was one of the pioneering Syrian lawyers who took ardent steps on this path. Our leading position was driven by superior performance in multiple cases before all courts across Syria and the comprehensive knowledge we had in legal procedures, counseling and contract drafting.
The secret to my individual success, and that of the office, lies in my firm faith in the right, justice and integrity, which are the fundamental guiding principles that my colleagues and I have adopted as our slogan in doing business. I passed these values on to my colleague lawyers, thereby becoming the torch that lit our way and lead us as we carried out the sublime duties of the legal profession.
