What's on Offer
Few law firms in the Middle East can match the quality of work on offer with this practice, so for a lawyer joining at this level there is a gold-plated opportunity on offer to work alongside partners who are true leaders in the field. The progression on offer is also far more pronounced than you would normally expect from a US practice, so it would suit someone who is ambitious in their career.
The salary on offer, as would be expected for a firm of this nature, is very much at the top end of market.
