Our long-established Dubai office is the hub for many Middle East clients, benefiting from the UAE's strategic position within the Gulf region. While oil remains a driver of economic activity, the increasing diversification of the Gulf economy towards real estate, technology and healthcare make it increasingly attractive to many of our clients.  We also offer Saudi capability through our association with a local firm.

As well as 12 lawyers permanently based in the region, our broader Middle East group includes leading lawyers with specific experience in the region drawn from across our network. We can help, whether you are expanding your operations into the region, you need support for your local entity, or you’re a Middle Eastern business looking to invest in other parts of the world. We are particularly recognised for our work advising wealthy Middle Eastern individuals and families on a vast array of personal and commercial investments across Europe and Asia.

Our team of Arabic speakers and experts in Middle Eastern businesses matters are well versed in the different cultural and business practices in the region, including Islamic finance and Sharia law, and in dealing with the local authorities. We can connect you to leading commercial institutions, government agencies, financial institutions and other key intermediaries with whom we have strong ties.

We can help companies with transactions across the Middle East and North Africa.
