Top tier O&G work, great in-house opportunity.

CLIENT: We are running an interesting search for a new Legal Counsel to join a large corporate in Abu Dhabi. Their work is predominantly focussed around oil and gas.

ROLE: You will join as a Legal Counsel and be supported by a wider community of lawyers, whilst taking on a relatively independent role which would see you with direct reporting lines to two separate CEO's, from two separate but connected businesses. The work would be varied and essentially cover general corporate and commercial matters, procurement, corporate governance and shareholder management.

CANDIDATE: It is essential that candidates are:

- Western qualified with a good grounding in either a well known law firm or corporate MNC

- Have a skill set covering corporate, commercial and procurement would be ideal but experience into projects and construction could also work

- 4+ PQE and ideally based in the Middle East right now, although ex-regional or those with exposure to working here may also suit

Excellent role for a strong private practice lawyer looking for their first in-house, or someone looking to move to an independent role but with outside support.
