SENIOR LEGAL COUNSEL, 6 MONTH CONTRACT, DUBAI
Rare in-house role for a Dubai based lawyer to handle interesting and high-quality work.
CLIENT: Our client is a multinational business with a strong presence across EMEA, in a niche business area. They are seeking an excellent commercial lawyer to join them in their Dubai office.
ROLE: The position is intended to be a 6-month contract, although there may always be scope for extending. Day to day work will see you handling a very broad mix of:
- general commercial contracts, both specific to their industry and broader industry standard agreements
- reporting to the CEO
- board and shareholder resolutions
- specific M&A work
- corporate governance and regulatory matters (new offices / territories etc)
- finance, restructuring
- dispute management
CANDIDATE: Ideal candidates will be common law qualified (UK being preferred), around 6+ PQE and capable of picking up a wide variety of work. Emerging markets work will be strongly valued, and it is likely that you will need to be based in Dubai already.
