Legal Counsel, FMCG, Dubai

Our client is a very well established, household name, global multinational. In the field of designing, manufacturing, selling and distributing their range of products, they have a need for a new Legal Counsel to be based in Dubai.

ROLE: You will join as a mid-level lawyer and support the Head of Legal across a wide geography (MEA+), whilst having strong links to larger regional HQ’s in Europe. Much of your work will involve structuring and drafting commercial contracts for internal business units to use in commercial agreements with external clients and customers. You’ll cover both civil and common law jurisdictions, a wide range of corporate and commercial work, as well as the compliance function.

CANDIDATE: There are some key criteria for strong candidates to fulfil:

– You’ll need to be a qualified lawyer with at least 5+ years’ of post qualified experience.
– In-house experience in a multinational sales industry would be highly valued (eg FMCG).
– Whilst knowledge of Arabic and French are not needed, they are always helpful in any capacity.
– Strong knowledge of commercial contracts and general multinational standard business acumen.
– Blended legal and compliance experience would be ideal.
– You’ll need the skill set of a general corporate and commercial lawyer but be able to lend experience to other areas such as IP and employment (or whatever it might be).
– You don’t need to be based in Dubai right now, but Middle East and Africa experience will help immensely.

Please do get in touch to discuss. We have a full job description to share with suitable candidates.
