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: 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
- some capital markets work

CANDIDATE: Ideal candidates will be common law qualified (UK being preferred), around 5+ PQE and capable of picking up a wide variety of matters. Emerging markets work will be strongly valued, and it is likely that you will need to be based in Dubai already. This could particularly suit someone with capital markets work, who is looking to branch out into broader work, but still support that area.

Rare in-house role for a Dubai based lawyer to handle interesting and high-quality work.
