In today’s complex economy market drivers such as Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, the drive for knowledge based-economies, Dubai Strategic Plan 2030, Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, G20, Dubai Expo, amongst macro-economic factors have had a significant positive impact on the legal employment market. Construction is synonymous with the Middle East and with that we have seen an increase in construction arbitration and front end construction projects.

The region continues to be a target for lawyers based in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the US and firms based here in the Middle East. The growing demand for “Western Common Law” lawyers has buoyed the migration of lawyers to the UAE with firms looking to recruit the best and brightest talent from overseas.
