Dubai based - UK trained Corporate Lawyer – NQ to 3 years’ PQE (UK) – Ideal candidate will be in Dubai or will have had some exposure to the Middle East market.
Opportunity for a UK solicitor to join the growing Corporate team in the Dubai office of this mid-sized international law firm. This is a wide ranging role which will suit someone who has trained/practised with a good City/equivalent firm and who enjoys varied (but high quality) corporate work, and who relishes client contact and business development. In return, you will have the chance to really contribute to the growth strategy and can expect to reap the benefits of this as the practice develops.
This mid-sized UK law firm is committed to growing its international presence in those locations which are central to its clients’ interests. One such region is the Middle East, where the firm’s Dubai office, though relatively small, is advising some major clients on a wide array of work. Joining now, you can expect to be involved in a broad range of work in what is a heavily client focused role; as such, you will be instrumental in the growth of the team and the business making this a great opportunity if you are ambitious and seeking the space to really show what you can do.
Established as the hub for work across the Middle East and further afield, Dubai is an international financial centre with a legal sector that numbers many of the world’s leading law firms. Lawyers working here will benefit from first-class experience that is marketable globally as well as gaining levels of responsibility and client exposure far earlier than would typically be the case in London. Furthermore, attractive tax-free salaries make this a good move financially, offering the potential to live well whilst building savings. Outside of work, you can expect an exciting ex-pat lifestyle in one of the most dynamic cities in the world as well as opening up an entire region within easy reach via Dubai’s major airport.
