Senior Legal Counsel, Disputes and Procurement

Taylor Root have worked with this client numerous times over many years. They have come to us again to help them find a new Senior Legal Counsel to add to their Dubai based team, and are seeking a disputes lawyer with additional experience across procurement and oil and gas.

Role and responsibilities:
* Most of the role will cover looking after contentious matters across international assets, with you being involved in high value arbitration.
* Resolving such disputes will be an additional objective.
* Work will also flow across from procurement, where you will develop, revise and apply standard templates across business sectors.

Candidate requirements:
* You’ll need to have strong private practice or in-house experience from a reputable organisation.
* Either civil or common law experience is fine.
* 8+ PQE is ideal, with at least 4+ of that having concentrated on high value international arbitration.
* Exposure specifically to oil and gas disputes is vital.
* You don’t need to be based in the Middle East right now, but broader Middle East and Asia experience is important.

If you think you can fulfil these criteria, please do contact us to discuss.
