We have over 600 lawyers working across the Middle East, Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australia. We take a progressive approach to our roles in commercial business – thinking creatively and pragmatically to support our clients.

Our Middle East presence is strong, anchored by our offices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, with associations in Riyadh (in association with Mohammed Alkhliwi) and Kuwait City (in association with Rula Dajani Law Office) which both operate as fully fledged HFW offices.

Additionally, we have an exclusive alliance with Salem Al Maddfa advocates in the UAE, which allows us to advocate in local court proceedings through back-to-back Power of Attorneys.

We have focused the development of our capabilities and the growth of our expertise in a number of core sectors, all fundamental to the way international commerce works: aviation; construction, engineering & infrastructure; commodities; corporate & commercial; energy & offshore; financial institutions; insurance & reinsurance; logistics; mining; ports & terminals; regulatory and licensing; shipping; travel and superyachts. Much of our work is multi-jurisdictional and our offices work closely together to provide the best solutions for our clients. 

Our Middle East team of more than 58 lawyers (31 bilingual Arabic speakers) can offer local and international clients a unique blend of local market insight, specialist industry expertise and commercial pragmatism. Our lawyers work seamlessly together to service local businesses, government entities, multinational companies, financial institutions and private investors throughout the MENA region.
