Four and a half years on, we are delighted to continue to grow and establish worldwide partnerships and recognition. The name SOL is now recognized internationally as a brand and we are proud of our achievements since we began, which include having been listed in international legal directories. The name SOL is special and will always serve as a reminder of why we all do what we do, our motivation and driving force and what truly matters: family. SOL stands for Sarah Omar Lina. Those of you who know me know that first and foremost I am blessed to be mother to Omar and Lina. All that I do, I do for them.”
