The Middle East's projects sector is strong at the moment and certain shrewd clients have pivoted towards sustainable energy and utilities, core social infrastructure, and tech. This client is a growing leader in those sectors and is now looking to grow its Dubai based legal team.

ROLE: : As part of small legal team, you will need to cover a range of support to the business units across emerging markets. There are two key areas to the role - the negotiating and drafting of complex projects documentation, combined with day to day problem solving and risk management.

CANDIDATE: There are some key criteria to be considered:

- It's essential that you have strong international standard private practice training with a recognised law firm.
- You'll need a background in projects law and be very comfortable with the heavy lifting side of projects documentation.
- Exposure to power, utilities, and social infrastructure sectors will be ideal.
- PQE can be between around 5 and 10 years.
- Strong negotiating and resilience when dealing with large counterparties and JV partners.
- Ideally, you'll need to be based in the Middle East right now.

This is an extremely exciting opportunity for a great projects lawyer to move from practice and join a leading in-house team with progressive ideas and a flexible working environment.
