In an increasingly competitive market, we remain ahead of the curve as the first and only international law firm to fully merge with a leading UAE firm. We have worked on some of the most significant matters and legislation in the country, including the successful defence of Dubai Islamic Bank in a highly complex USD 2 billion dispute, and the drafting and review of the new maritime law, the first in over 30 years, for the UAE Federal Transport Authority. We have also advised on one of the first competition filings under the new UAE Competition Law as well as on complex cross-border investigations in the UAE.

As the only global law firm to merge with a major local firm, Baker McKenzie Habib Al Mulla leverages its local knowledge and global resources to help domestic and international clients navigate the increasingly sophisticated requirements of doing business in the UAE. Based on our experience drafting major UAE legislation and advising clients on their practical application, we provide a unique platform for doing business in the Gulf region.

As one of few firms authorized to provide formal legal training to all lawyers in the UAE, Baker McKenzie Habib Al Mulla lawyers benefit from working in an environment filled with experienced legal professionals. Our lawyers also receive professional development training from the Dubai Legal Affairs Department and participate in global training programs such as the Associate Transfer Program.

Our UAE offices also offer England & Wales Training Contracts, a two-year training program encompassing at least three areas of English law that provides trainees with the basic knowledge and skills to become qualified E&W lawyers.
