About

In 1994 two prominent Maldivian lawyers, Ahmed Muizzu and Husnu Al-Suood left their positions in the bench as chief judges of the Maldivian Criminal Court and Civil Court respectively to establish a full service law firm in the Maldives. Over the years, under the leadership of Muizzu and Suood & Anwar LLP has established itself as one of the most prominent law firms in the Maldives.

At Suood & Anwar LLP, we are motivated by the guiding principle that a society built on the foundations of positive law is a better society. Our part in this process is to facilitate a thorough understanding of the law so that the affairs of our society may run smoothly.

Found in the year 2000, Suood, Anwar and Co. has, over the last decade, earned renown for excellence and service nonpareil. Our lawyers are consistently ranked amongst the top tier of the Maldives and, today, we have as our clientele key government agencies, international financial institutions, several multinational corporations and some of the biggest corporations in Maldivian business.

We believe that the markings of a successful lawyer go deeper than a simple understanding of the statute books. Our reputation for distinction stems from a deep fluency of the law and an understanding of the Maldivian context few others can match. We help our clients to appreciate the challenges and opportunities in a country that is constantly changing; and advise them on how they can best promote their business. Simply, we combine legal insight with business acumen so that the interests of our customers may best be served. This contextual insight comes from us being the proud inheritors of a legal tradition that began in Meedhoo Island in Addu Atoll almost a century ago. We are proud to count in our ranks partner lawyers, both past and present, who have made important contributions in shaping the topography of the Maldivian legal environment.
