Our Commitment to Diversity


Middle East

We advise clients in the Middle East through our offices in Dubai and Doha. We are well positioned to provide solutions to the global legal challenges of our regional clients, as well as to help international clients with their Middle East matters and support the legal needs of regional clients abroad.

Our Doha office is located in Qatar’s West Bay and includes a team of lawyers who have a deep understanding of the Qatari market, as well as substantial Middle East and international experience. Our primary practices are Corporate, including Mergers and Acquisitions; Asset Management and Investment Funds; Banking; Finance, including Islamic Finance; Construction and Infrastructure; and Litigation and Dispute Resolution, including International Arbitration and Real Estate Litigation. 

Our lawyers advise regional and international corporations and governments throughout the Middle East, Asia, the North Africa region, and beyond. They have considerable experience and industry connections and are able to leverage the capabilities of our colleagues in the firm’s offices across the Middle East, Asia, Europe, South America, and the United States. Our Doha team is also poised with bilingual Arabic and English speaking lawyers.

Our Dubai office, located within the Dubai International Financial Centre, supports clients doing business in both the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the wider Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The UAE’s continued commitment to infrastructure development and its position within the financial services sector makes it an important location for our firm. Further, its proximity to Europe, Africa, and Asia enhances the strength of its international trading relationships. 

The primary practice areas of our Dubai office are Litigation and Dispute Resolution, including International Arbitration; Financial Services; Real Estate; and Labor, Employment, and Workplace Safety. We provide advice on a broad spectrum of commercial and corporate matters, including mergers and acquisitions, private equity, and venture capital investments; capital markets; investment funds; and financial services regulatory matters. The office also works closely with our firmwide Islamic Finance group. In addition, our Dubai lawyers provide advice on UAE law and practice, including retention and supervision of local lawyers in the Dubai and UAE courts.
