Private Practice – Partners/Partner Designate
The partner market in the Middle East has been an area of growth in the last few years. With firms substantially increasing their presence on the ground in the region, the desire for senior lawyers with experience of working in the region (and with clients) or those with a skill set which is easily transferable into the market, has grown.
This has led to a number of high profile senior moves within the region and also well respected partners from other markets relocating to the Middle East to further develop firm’s platforms and client base. The rapid growth has also produced some excellent opportunities for senior associates to either achieve immediate partnership or a short-track to partnership ie partner designate.
We have been involved in a number of these high profile moves and have the depth of experience to advise on any senior level move to or within the market.
Private Practice – Associates
After decades of being an outpost, the Middle East is now a thriving economic centre offering the opportunity for associates of all levels to progress their career with major law firms, both international and local.
The growth of firms within the region in the recent past has attracted lawyers from all over the world, creating a small but very international pool of talent. Moves within the region are now common place, as lawyers attempt to manoeuvre their career in a chosen direction. However, there are still many opportunities for overseas lawyers to relocate and develop their careers in locations as diverse as Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
Tax free salaries and an excellent standard of living on offer throughout the Middle East.
