Our local lawyers are supported by Weil's other offices, and most notably by a dedicated practice group working out of London and New York.
These global resources combined with our network of selected first-class local law firms enable us to source and provide the full range of legal services, tailor-made to suit the specific needs of a particular transaction.
The Dubai office works closely with cross-disciplinary teams across the firm on a wide range of industry specialisms, including telecommunications, healthcare, financial services, public utilities, infrastructure and transportation.
Achievements, Community Service and Pro Bono
Pro bono is at the heart of our practice across every office of the firm. We have recently worked in conjunction with our London office to provide pro bono legal services to "Wamda", a web platform created by Abraaj Capital to facilitate entrepreneurship across the MENASA region and we continue to support Wamda as a dedicated launch partner.
