Senior Dispute Lawyer job in Abu Dhabi
Job Reference number: 669816
The UAE has been blessed with a number of high level construction and infrastructure projects. Fortunately for our client a number of the contractors involved use them as outside counsel, especially for dispute matters with suppliers, fellow contractors, and occasionally, clients.
The client is seeking a dedicated construction lawyer whose focus happen to be dispute matters. They want an individual who is familiar with the market, knows how to work in the region, has personally worked on a number of high end disputes themselves and seeking to remain/ step into Private Practice.
The Candidate will regularly provide contract review, interpretation and management advice for developers and contractors in respect of UAE law compatibility, payment provisions, delay provisions, dispute resolution provisions. They must also have first-hand knowledge and experience of negotiating with UAE government bodies and the application of pertinent local laws in a variety of sectors
Construction lawyers who fit the above profile will ideally be familiar with all forms of dispute resolution ideally with the UAE's adjudication, arbitration and litigation proceedings and has been involved in the settlement of disputes through early settlement negotiations, mediation, adjudication and expert determination. However this is not a pre-requisite as long as they have some level of exposure to Litigation and Arbitration matters in a common law jurisdiction.
The client has requested candidates have actually managed and ran with transaction from start to finish. They have received a number of applications of more junior attorneys whom have worked on transactions but not overseen nor managed them. These have, as a result, been unsuccessful in their applications.
