Abu Dhabi Associate 2 - 4PQE

We are looking to expand our English law capabilities in the Abu Dhabi office.

We are interested to meet with U.K. trained and qualified candidates who have between 2 to 4 years PQE across M&A and/or capital markets.  The ideal candidate will have an excellent academic record and a genuine desire and enthusiasm to embrace a broad range of corporate work.

The Abu Dhabi office is one of the smaller offices of the firm, with fewer than 10 lawyers, but has been involved in some of the largest and highest profile transactions in the region and further afield. It is the hub of the firm’s Middle East and North Africa Practice (which also includes around 20 partners and counsel working from London, New York, Paris, Frankfurt and Milan) and Abu Dhabi lawyers regularly work as part of teams that include colleagues from other offices.

Clients range from governments, through sovereign wealth funds, to major international corporations, private equity and investment funds and ultra-high net worth individuals. Recent work has involved outbound M&A investments in targets in North and South America, Europe and Asia and capital markets offerings in Iraq and Pakistan.

Our Abu Dhabi office is located within the Abu Dhabi Global Market, the most recent free zone created in the UAE.  The launch of the ADGM is an exciting development for the economy and legal landscape of the UAE and has offered our Abu Dhabi lawyers the chance to be involved in the development of new laws and regulations for an entirely new jurisdiction (based on English law and a UK/EU regulatory framework).  The physical location of the office is ideal, on the 27th floor of an award-winning office development on Al Maryah Island, connected to the prestigious Galleria Mall, Rosewood Hotel and Four Seasons Hotel, which together offer a diverse choice of restaurants and bars.
