Working in the United Arab Emirates

A cutting-edge organization with a truly global mindset, White & Case consistently ranks as one of the premier law firms operating in the Middle East, regularly receiving awards and accolades for our work on groundbreaking transactions in the region. In the UAE, we have advised on some of the country’s most significant energy and infrastructure projects and high-profile capital market and corporate M&A deals, working alongside leading government-owned enterprises and international clients.

With offices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, our partner-led teams provide dynamic and pragmatic solutions focused on the common goals of our broad range of clients, advancing their interests in jurisdictions around the world. We believe in an ethos of collaboration, with a deep bench of lawyers qualified in English, New York, UAE, Saudi and Canadian law contributing diverse perspectives and invaluable levels of expertise to our team.

The varied and challenging nature of our work means that innovation, teamwork and an entrepreneurial spirit are essential, and our lawyers have the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of legal specialties, including project development and finance, corporate, bank finance, disputes, construction and capital markets. Our associates are given a lot of responsibility but find themselves part of an open collegial culture in which senior lawyers are generous with their knowledge and new associates are encouraged to be forthright with their questions.
