Job Details

Our client is running a fantastic project that has current legal positions that will see you joining growing teams, working on projects/construction/energy deals that involve working on new developments, construction, real estate and hospitality deals and major high value transactions. Although the work will predominantly slot into those key areas, other more general day to day commercial work will come up, as well as risk mitigation and regulatory compliance issues. There is ample opportunity for you to help grow, train and mentor a team in order to set the bar for international and internal standards.

CANDIDATE: There are some strict barriers for interview, you will need

- 3 to 6+ years PQE with a good international law firm and it is essential that you have international standard training and experience.
- Extensive depth and strength in one or more of projects/construction law
- You will need to have worked in a major developed market such as the US, Europe or Asia/Australia.
- No need for previous GCC experience - in fact those with none are very much encouraged to apply.

This is an amazing opportunity for someone to launch their career into the Middle East and work on projects that have never been done before. Please reach out to Nigel Byrne (MD) for a strictly confidential chat. Fantastic tax free salary on offer with free schooling/housing/food/bonus and benefits.
