What the team is known for

A homegrown firm with a strong reputation for its international approach, Hadef & Partners capably advises on a broad range of multi-jurisdictional matters. The firm is held in high regard for its ability to act on the UAE and regional elements of broader international projects. The team maintains strong links to leading independent firms throughout the Middle East and Gulf region, collaborating seamlessly with foreign practices to service the regional demands of its international client base.
The firm's Abu Dhabi and Dubai groups are well equipped to advise on a range of complex areas for overseas and local clients. The team has an excellent track record of acting as co-counsel on international disputes, while its transactional lawyers are accustomed to working on international projects. Specialists skilfully advise on M&A deals that are cross-border, as well as project finance deals and matters relating to the TMT, real estate and construction sectors.


One source endorses the firm for its "strength and depth in understanding the complex and untested areas of UAE law when taking projects into a space where, if it is the first of its kind, issues arise." The same interviewee adds: "They have access to people that most firms don't necessarily have."
