LEGAL COUNSEL, MAJOR CORPORATE, DUBAI
CLIENT: We work closely with this particular client, who handle some of the best and most diverse legal work in the Middle East. They are need to expand their current legal team and wish to hire a mid-level corporate lawyer.
ROLE: The position will sit in a small group and the flow of work and level of responsibility will be strong. You will report directly to the General Counsel and work under other seniors, handling large scale corporate transactional M&A work, re-structuring, capital markets, regulatory, compliance and corporate governance, as well as a breadth of general commercial and assorted matters. Deal flow (both regional and international) will be regular and keep you interested at all times. The nature and size of the transactions will likely be comparable or equal to any law firm work you will find in the region.
CANDIDATE: It is essential that you are a common law qualified lawyer who has trained with, or comes from a very strong international standard law firm, although you may have since moved in-house. Ideally you would be based in the Middle East right now (with a strong preference for Dubai) but candidates from strong international legal markets are also encouraged to apply. An ideal PQE will be 4-7 years' and the nature of your background will need to be large scale, high quality M&A.
