Life at Freshfields: MENA

A unique environment and opportunity

We have been advising clients in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region for over 30 years

Freshfields has one of the most significant global legal practices in the MENA region.

Our offices in the MENA region are located in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Riyadh (through an association with the Law Firm of Salah Al Hejailan which also has offices in Jeddah and Al Khobar in Saudi Arabia). Our practice in MENA comprises over 50 qualified lawyers with 14 nationalities speaking 16 languages, including Arabic.

The markets of the MENA region are fast-paced ever changing environments, rich in culture, history and opportunity and increasingly major economies on the global stage. These dynamics offer our employees an entrepreneurial environment and vibrancy like no other. 

Where we do not have an office we have exceptional local counsel contacts who share our high-quality standards which, coupled with our own extensive institutional expertise, allows us to deliver a truly international standard service integrated with important local knowledge, on a cross-border basis.
