*PROJECTS – PARTNER/COUNSEL ROLE – MAJOR INTERNATIONAL LAW FIRM – DUBAI, UAE*

This is a rare Projects Counsel/Partner opening in the Dubai legal market with no regional client following required!

Our client is a major US law firm with a flourishing network of offices located in key business locations around the world.

Its Dubai office has been successfully operating in the region for over 15 years to date and is very well integrated within the firm; its lawyers often work closely with colleagues in other offices throughout the US and Europe, the Middle East and Asia.  Due to organic growth and an ongoing pipeline of work, it is looking to appoint an entry level partner or counsel to the team to service clients on energy and infrastructure projects, acting for ‘A’ list clients in both the private and public sectors, including sovereigns and state-owned business in various jurisdictions, including in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Key requirements for the role are as follows:

  • Common law qualification – UK, Australian/New Zealand, Canadian or South African lawyer;
  • Currently a Senior Associate or Counsel at another international law firm in London or the UAE/Middle East;
  • Solid experience of leading major transactional projects – in either the energy and/or infrastructure sectors – is needed;
  • Prior experience in the Middle East would be preferred.

This is a unique opportunity to take a step up in your career and to undertake a partner role at a major international law firm!  No client following is needed, due to the ongoing pipeline of regional projects work which is regularly generated within the firm.
