Find out why we recommend working in Dubai? 
This middle eastern jewel of the UAE has an unmistakable sky line and offers one of the most vibrant working and living environments in the world. Dubai is Tax free, so you will find you may have more expendable money than you would compared to the UK for example. The city of Dubai is a world leader in business and especially the legal sector where the biggest international law firms across the globe flock to Dubai to house their head offices. 

What is the legal sector like?
Many of the world’s leading international law firms have a base in Dubai. This is mainly due to the city being a robust and stable economy which was only marginally affected by the financial crash of 2008. The law firms within the city have an abundance of work in M&A, Banking, Finance, Construction and Real Estate. The DIFC (Dubai International Financial Centre) has more than 22 of the world’s top 30 banks and 6 of the top 10 insurance companies. The DIFC has its own independent financial regulator and laws, which are based on the English common law system. Dubai law firms can also serve clients based in the Gulf Cooperation Council, North Africa and India. 

What about work/life balance?
In terms of your work/life balance, Dubai offers a vast amount of activities for people of any age to enjoy. There are lots of sports clubs and places to socialise which offer great introductions for business contacts or just to meet new friends. In Dubai especially, there is a big expat community and English is widely spoken by most people.
