Charterhouse is currently working with a global UK headquartered law firm that is looking to hire a Construction Disputes Senior Associate / Partner-Designate to play the lead role in relation to its construction disputes offering in Dubai.
About the role
The firm has a successful construction disputes offering in the region and internationally, which as part of the growth strategy for the region, they are looking to bolster with the addition of a further Partner, Partner-Designate or Senior Associate looking to move into partnership and a lead role.
The candidate should be established in the UAE / Middle East market with a strong network, some client following, along with skill set. This would be an excellent opportunity for an individual who has perhaps hit a glass ceiling or is feeling marginalised to join a law firm that has construction work at the core of its offering and strategy and the opportunity for a fast-track career to partnership.
The level of entry into the firm i.e. either partnership or counsel, will depend on the individuals profile and business case. This as a strategic hire could be attractive to a Partner looking to move or a Senior Associate / Partner-Designate with some business case that has found the path to partnership blocked and would be interested in exploring alternatives.
