HKA attains regional headquarters license in Saudi Arabia

Global consulting firm HKA has signalled its intent in Saudi Arabia with the formalisation of its regional headquarters license in the kingdom.

HKA, which has over 1,000 staff across 45+ offices worldwide, has been active in the Saudi market for more than two decades. From its offices in Jeddah and Riyadh, the consulting firm helps its clients with risk mitigation, dispute resolution and litigation services for capital projects in the built environment.

In Saudi Arabia, HKA’s portfolio includes working on some of the country’s most iconic projects and commissions across a variety of sectors, including several Vision 2030 giga projects.

Commenting on the milestone of gaining its license under the regional headquarters programme from the Ministry of Investment of Saudi Arabia, Amanda Clack, Partner and Regional CEO for EMEA said: “HKA’s long-term commitment to the Saudi market dates back some 40 years, with our Jeddah and Riyadh offices having operated for over 15 years.  The confirmation of our regional headquarters License is an exciting and natural evolution of our continued commitment to the region.”

Notably, HKA becomes the first major international consultancy firm in the construction claims and expert segment to gain regional HQ status under the programme.
