What the team is known for

Shearman & Sterling's UAE offering acts as the epicentre of the law firm's activity within the Middle East. Forming part of the law firm's integrated global network, the UAE team acts on a broad spectrum of complex and high-value cross-border mandates. Specialists are well equipped to counsel foreign investors moving into the region, as well as prominent Middle Eastern entities seeking multi-jurisdictional support.

The team's M&A practitioners are well-versed in a range of trans-national deals, particularly those involving the oil and gas industry. Its banking and finance practice is also international in scope, with specialists routinely engaged by prominent financial institutions and sovereign wealth funds on a range of cross-border projects. Additionally, construction projects that have international elements are well handled by the group.
