CLIENT: One of the Middle East's leading tech start-ups is expanding its legal team, with the need for a new junior to mid-level Legal Counsel. They have global operations, but with a major focus across EMEA and South East Asia. Continued M&A and complex projects has meant at least one new lawyer is required for their Dubai based team.

ROLE: As part of a small group, your work will be varied and consist predominantly of drafting and negotiating commercial contacts across customers and suppliers, as well as more complex technology contracts such as outsourcing, software licencing and developments agreements. There will also be a need to address IP issues, regulatory, data privacy and protection, in addition to demand for M&A support.

CANDIDATE: There are some key criteria to consider when assessing suitability:

- Common law qualified from a western jurisdiction.
- 2 - 5 years PQE would be a guideline range.
- Essential to have strong law firm training.
- Spent at least 2 years post qualification in the TMT or corporate department of a top tier law firm.
- Both local and internationally based applicants are welcome to apply.

This is an ideal position for a bright and tech savvy law firm associate to move over to in-house, in a rapidly growing sector, as well as the opportunity to live and work in Dubai, in a technology and media focussed free-zone.
