I joined Taylor Wessing’s Dubai office just under a year ago. The office takes considerable pride in what it does but is one where we are mutually supportive of one another and take pleasure in each other’s successes. The office operates an open door policy and opinions are always welcome from all members of the office. I have also been impressed by the refreshing transparency which we bring to much of what we do. Taylor Wessing has a great brand but brands alone will not get you business. Making it clear to clients that while we are very good at what we do, others are also good but we believe we are people with whom clients will enjoy working.

After completing part of my professional training with Taylor Wessing (Middle East) LLP in 2011, I re-joined the firm in 2014 as an Associate. The possibility to work on international and local transactions as part of an experienced, international team and the great team spirit were the key reasons. Right from the start my supervising partner got me involved in many interesting types of matters. I quickly began to take the lead on mid-size transactions and have the chance to take responsibility for certain aspects of large transactions. I believe developing my skills so fast was only possible due to the support of my supervising partner and senior colleagues, who are always free to discuss a matter. Team work is also important in our office. All teams work closely together, allowing everyone to generate knowledge in various areas besides the area we specialize in. Also every lawyer is encouraged to develop business development skills. In summary, Taylor Wessing (Middle East) LLP is a fantastic workplace for ambitious lawyers to develop different skill sets quickly and work with a team of professionals, who can not only discuss a matter but also have fun together.

After completing my Training Contract with Taylor Wessing and qualifying into the London-based Construction team, I moved to our Dubai office in 2013 to practice in international arbitration and dispute resolution. The highlight of my job is the real opportunity to work across multiple jurisdictions and get to know my colleagues across the globe. I am regularly exposed to matters across all of our offices, whether it is working with the Paris office to provide a legal opinion, working with Frankfurt on the enforcement of an arbitral award, assisting the Shanghai office with alternative dispute resolution or organising a joint pitch with our Seoul office. This international dynamic not only strengthens your commerciality and inter-personal skills, but makes you appreciate that every office places the same value on teamwork, highlighting that Taylor Wessing’s real strength continues to be its people.
