UK Firm: Litigation / DR Senior / Local Courts Work, The Gulf

NEW 2021/2: Middle East and large UK Practice: you will ideally be a senior, networking Western lawyer looking to head up the local courts practice in the central part of the Gulf.  You will have experience in local courts work and know the machinations better than anyone in order to take a grip of this largely new role that will be at the forefront of a major department.  This heavyweight is easily one of the best placed law firms to capitalise on a market that has grown immensely again in recent years and is set to grow even further as the litigation market begins to spread and open up; both on the global side, but also on the local courts side.  This rare role is based in central Dubai and would suit a UK / Commonwealth qualified local resident, at a regional firm or UK/US qualified lawyer with a Western firm looking for that all important step up in their career from assistant to associate or even associate to partner - with a practice that is 'going places'.  Local work is the key here. 

Based in the City of London, Dan qualified as a solicitor in 2003 and is the owner of one of the longest serving legal recruitment agencies in London and the South East of England, Ellis-Wake. He regularly advises his clients on the complexity of the legal market, on their strategic future and is a known 'connector' and 'influencer' in the recruitment market. Dan's experience stretches back to 2004 and he's seen many significant changes in Global and local legal and recruitment markets and has recruited successfully in all of them.

If this role is of interest please contact Dan Wake (Director) in confidence at or on (+44) 7894 085 790.

Ellis-Wake acts as an employment agency for permanent roles.
