Candidate requirements:
* You'll need to have strong private practice or in-house experience from a reputable organisation.
* Either civil or common law experience is fine.
* 8+ PQE is ideal, with at least 4+ of that having concentrated on high value international arbitration.
* Exposure specifically to oil and gas disputes is vital.
* You don't need to be based in the Middle East right now, but broader Middle East and Asia experience is important.
