The Middle East has become an increasingly strategic international hub for both Western and Eastern financial centres. Whilst Dubai is still regarded as the main corporate and legal centre for the region, GDP and economic growth in other locations such as Qatar are some of the highest in the world.  

Over the coming years we expect to see many political and social changes following the Arab Spring. Jurisdictions such as Kuwait are already becoming increasingly important for the future development of the region. International law firms have been quick to understand the strategic need of securing a significant presence in the region, in the interests of clients and partners alike. 

Fox Rodney Search has a well-established Middle East practice directed by our London office, where the team has extensive knowledge and experience of this market.  We have an in-depth understanding of the cultural and economic realities of doing business in the region and have significant experience in assisting both US and UK law firms in establishing a presence across the region including the UAE and Saudi Arabia.   

We have the ability to search multiple markets across Europe, Asia and the US in order to meet our clients’ requirements and strategic growth needs in the Middle East. This allows us to identify and source the most appropriate and successful candidates for our clients. 

We also have a partnership with Omar Kabbani who is based in the Middle East and we deliver a first class service to clients through our two firms’ shared values and relationship-driven service.
