Corporate & Commercial Partner


Dubai, UAE

Ref: GP186-4878

Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

Charterhouse is working with a long standing Dubai / Middle East law firm that is looking to hire a Corporate Partner to play a key role within the ongoing development of its offering in Dubai. The firm would be interested in a Corporate Partner with high quality experience combined with an active client base / following to some sustainable level.

The role will involve working closely with the existing Partners in the firm’s Dubai office, as well as part of the wider international network. The firm has a long-standing reputation and client-base across the Middle East, dealing with ME government entities, High Net Worth individuals and local family groups / holding companies, corporations etc. The firm is looking for a Corporate Partner to enhance its existing offering and is interested in those individuals with an existing client base / following / book.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a well-established and successful law firm in the Dubai market which would provide an entrepreneurial or mature partner with a partial following with a sustainable base from which to operate.


The firm is interested in speaking to a qualified Corporate Lawyer with experience, ideally already in the UAE. This opportunity would suit an individual that has perhaps grown disillusioned with working at a larger law firm. It would be suitable for an individual looking for a more entrepreneurial alternative, from which to continue to operate in the Dubai / Middle East markets.

About the Company

The Charterhouse brand and business was launched in Dubai and the Middle East in April 2004 by a team of international recruiters and management consultants, after its inception in Sydney, Australia in September 2003. Charterhouse Middle East is now positioned as the leading regional recruiter within its area of disciplines and functional markets.

Charterhouse offers professional and bespoke contingency and retained search services to all sectors of the market. Service quality is guaranteed, thanks to a particular focus on flexibility. Charterhouse was the first international search and selection business to establish Dubai as its base. The growth in the Middle East region has been mirrored by Charterhouse globally, with offices now in Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Hong Kong, Singapore, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
