Michael Maloney has worked in Saudi Arabia for more than nine years advising local and international clients in complex commercial arrangements. He has handled cross-border M&A, divestitures, strategic joint ventures, corporate restructurings, and petrochemical and industrial projects and has acted for leading U.S., European, Japanese, and Saudi businesses on inbound and outbound foreign direct investments. He has particular experience in negotiating and advising on joint ventures, technology licenses, governance rules, noncompete arrangements, and complicated investment exit strategies.
Having lived in New York City and Tokyo prior to moving to Riyadh and later the Kingdom's oil rich industrial center of the Eastern Province, Michael understands global businesses and the unique culture and ways of doing business in not just Saudi Arabia but other countries. He has worked in each of Jones Day's Saudi Arabian offices since the Firm returned to the Kingdom in 2011 and is now based in the Alkhobar Office, with a regular presence in Washington and New York as well.
Michael has recently advised on transactions in the Kingdom's rapidly expanding industrial, military, and consumer sectors and led Jones Day teams in advising foreign and local clients in transactions in the petrochemical, FMCG, EPC, and military technologies industries.
Michael is a member of the American Bar Association, the New York State Bar Association, the American Business Group of Riyadh, the American Business Group of the Eastern Province, and the American Chamber of Commerce Bahrain.
