Established in 2006, the Dubai office is a highly regarded centre for commercial legal advice in the dynamic Gulf Region. Our lawyers are qualified in a number of jurisdictions, including England & Wales, Republic of Ireland, Hong Kong, India, and New Zealand; they lecture widely on legal topics.

As such we are well placed and experienced in dealing with the particular challenges of the rapidly evolving marketplace that characterises the Gulf Region. Our teams are led by five partners experienced in construction, insurance and re-insurance, general commercial litigation, and aviation (financing, leasing and disputes).

Our core businesses are construction and engineering (both contentious and non-contentious/project documentation), insurance and reinsurance, and general commercial litigation.

Our client base includes local companies and organisations, and international businesses with a presence in the Gulf Region.
