Mukadam Legal are now inviting interest from experienced in house lawyers on behalf of their client to apply for an exciting new opportunity based in Qatar. 


Due to the success of the company in recent years, my clients are looking to bring their legal function in house and establish an award winning in house legal team. They have successfully hired and integrated a Head of Legal and a Senior Legal Counsel and are now looking to further compliment the legal team with the appoint of a Legal Counsel. 


This role will lend itself well to those lawyers with a construction and engineering background given the nature of the business. As Legal Counsel you will be responsible for providing a range of legal advice from general construction contracts and disputes to providing support to the project and management teams. With this in mind you will need to have a strong understanding of FIDIC contracts, claims procedures, handling arbitrations, disputes and experience conducting relevant legal research. 


Given the level of autonomy and responsibility with this role, it is essential that you have a strong legal background and legal acumen, be able to demonstrate fluent written and oral English communication skills and be a motivated self starter. Prior experience working in a project led organization will be considered a strong advantage.
