Dubai – Growing Law Jobs For Adventurous Lawyers

The Dubai Legal Market – Growing Law Jobs For Adventurous Lawyers
Kiwi lawyer talks to LawFuel about working in the UAE market – Legal Jobs Board & Law Newswire - The increasing attraction of Dubai as a place for lawyers to work is illustrated by the case of Kiwi lawyer Steven Henderson, formerly of Russell McVeagh, who is now head of major law firm Clifford Chance’s real estate team in Dubai.

Dubai has become increasingly popular as a place for law firms to do business, described by one lawyer recently as the “Silicon Valley of the World.”

Clifford Chance has been in Dubai since 1975, well ahead of many of the American firms who are only now discovering the work available in the region.

One of the attractions for younger lawyers is the night life and amenities of Dubai, along with its professional challenges. interviewed Henderson, who has been in Dubai for nearly two years and handles major real estate deals, enjoying the challenges of dealing with seven Emirates in the UAE, each with their own legal challenges and laws.

“The real estate team advise on all aspects of the "property life cycle" from acquisition, property/project finance, development, and construction through to disposal. We are acting for many of the large government developers who are undertaking "mega projects" here in Dubai (and now elsewhere in the world),” says Henderson.
