What the team is known for

Shearman & Sterling's UAE offering acts as the epicentre of the firm's activity within the Middle East. Forming part of the 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 both 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 also well handled by the group.

Strengths

Discussing a cross-border transaction handled by the team, a client reports: "It involved different offices and different geographies, it was all very well coordinated." The interviewee also highlights the "quality of the people, irrespective of the office we use or the type of work we're seeing."
