What the team is known for

Allen & Overy's UAE team, comprising offices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, is recognised as one of the foremost practices in the jurisdiction. From its UAE base, the firm offers cross-border support to a broad range of clients, including global financial institutions, sovereign wealth funds and private equity funds. The UAE team is able to draw on the outstanding resources of the firm's in-house global network, and also maintains close ties to leading firms within the Middle East to handle multi-jurisdictional matters within the region.
From the UAE, the firm excels in cross-border M&A transactions for a base of leading international and local clients. Its banking capabilities are among the strongest in the market, and its capital markets specialists are well equipped to handle complex multi-jurisdictional mandates. Clients seeking cross-border advice in relation to the real estate, TMT and construction spheres are expertly served by the group, which also offers considerable strength in disputes that are international in scope.


"The advantage of Allen & Overy is that they are international, so if you are dealing with cross-border work into the UK or Asia, they can put you in touch with other offices, team up and manage them well. They are not only good locally, but regionally and internationally," one client remarks.
