CLIENT: We've worked with this client for some years across both their Middle East and European offices, and they are now seeking a new General Counsel to be based in Dubai. Their focus on an EMEA client base, but with continued expansion and innovative projects to manage.

ROLE: You will look after a small team consisting of UK qualified and bi-lingual Arabic team members, across multiple jurisdictions. Due to the tight nature of the team, the work comes through from many different angles, but with a core of corporate and general commercial matters. Other areas will be advising on general risk management, projects, energy and corporate governance.

CANDIDATE: There are some key criteria to take into consideration:

- It is essential that you have had (at some point in your career) exposure to working at a top tier law firm.
- Your skill set will ideally be general corporate commercial, but transferable skills and exposure to projects, construction, infrastructure, energy or utilities, are all relevant.
- You'll need at least 15+ years of PQE, and ideally have operated as a General Counsel or divisional Head of Legal already.
- Proven team building and management skills need to be in place.
- Candidates will need to be based in the Middle East right now (ideally in the UAE) and have exposure and understanding of the market here.

This is a great opportunity to join a strong and well respected multi-national company, please do get in touch to discuss.
