Home OUR LEGAL TEAMS Real Estate


Our team is small but perfectly formed, with in-depth sector knowledge at the heart of what we do.

What the team does

With 20 years of collective specialist experience of real estate in the Gulf, the team at Gowling WLG is recognised as a market leader. We have lived and worked in the region's key jurisdictions, including Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE and our team is recognised in both Chambers and Legal 500 directories.
Our team has experience in all areas of the life-cycle of real estate in the region from development and investment to litigation. In particular, we offer in-depth knowledge of the logistics sector across the Gulf and wider Middle East.  All members have practised in the region for over ten years, so we have seen the market and legal landscape evolve and, of course, welcome new perspectives to the practice.

What it's like to work with us

Our team works collaboratively on all transactions which means not only do we capitalise on each of our strengths but we also gain exposure to all areas of a transaction and diversify our experience.

You are given responsibility from the start, and continually develop transferable skills and gain experience to take from one deal to the next.

You'll be given responsibility, but we make sure you get lots of support. We have a non-hierarchical structure in which everyone shares the same working environment and there are no closed doors. Everyone takes pride in what they do, which means that things get done well.

By joining our team you would have direct access to a senior mentor who has seen the market evolve and has survived the highs and lows which have made this market so fascinating. We offer in-house training and weekly breakfast catch-ups which are very important in keeping everyone informed of the what's what and the who's who of the local real estate market.


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.
