Home OUR LEGAL TEAMS Commercial Litigation


Working closely with our international offices we advise on anything from general commercial matters to contentious trust cases.

What the team does

Our commercial litigation team is led by principal associate, Jennifer Al-Salim.  The team advises on general commercial litigation, fraud and asset-tracing matters and contentious trust cases.
The team supports the other core teams in Dubai on any contentious matters and regularly works with our other international offices, particularly the London office.  The team is involved in cases before the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) courts, the local Dubai courts, the English High Court and the British Virgin Islands (BVI) court. There is a very broad range of work, which keeps it interesting.
We have expertise in a range of sectors including aerospace, automotive, food and drink, financial services, real estate, retail and technology. Our client base is also diverse and one we are proud of.  A substantial proportion of our work is of a global nature.

What it's like to work with us

We are friendly and down to earth and everybody is very willing to support their colleagues when needed.  Almost all of the partners and many of the senior associates have been in Dubai for over ten years so they have a very good understanding of the local law and culture and they are very happy to assist new joiners.

Our team has a great variety of work which offers its lawyers the opportunity to develop their experience, whilst managing a full caseload. Junior lawyers will obtain hands-on experience, including direct client contact, across a wide variety of matters, ranging from high-value multi-jurisdictional ‘big ticket’ disputes to smaller cases that they will be encouraged to run themselves. 

The office is very sociable and we regularly go out for lunch, coffee and drinks.  The associates are very much encouraged to take part in business development events and to run their own initiatives in order to build their own network.   

Commercial litigation training is provided on a monthly basis which is run across our international offices by different partners and senior associates.  Each of the associates is encouraged to run a training session at some point over the year, which helps with the development of their presentation skills as well as their legal knowledge. It also provides an opportunity to keep in touch with their colleagues in the wider team across the various offices. 


Our application process will depend on the role you're applying for - but start by registering your interest. We will help you to be yourself - and the best you can be throughout the whole process.
