Our Dubai office serves as the hub of our Middle East operations, providing corporate, finance, projects and real estate advice to clients, and helping resolve disputes in all of these sectors.

We have advised on Middle East transactions for over 40 years and today our multidisciplinary team acts for international and regional clients conducting business throughout the Middle East and North Africa with legal experts working on notable deals in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Iraq, Iran, Oman, Jordan, Egypt, Pakistan and India.

Having worked on some of the largest transactions and highest profile disputes in the region, representing governments and their ministries, sovereign wealth funds, major corporates, banks and professional services organisations, we have an in-depth understanding of Middle East business culture and practices and the civil and Shari'ah law systems which apply.

We are acknowledged by clients and the legal directories as having partners who are leading practitioners in investment funds, corporate, finance, dispute resolution, infrastructure and projects and energy.

The working languages of the office are English, Arabic and French.
