Founded in 2001 our Legal Practice forms part of the Hydrogen Group, an AIM listed global specialist recruiter with over 350 specialist consultants across our seven international offices. We have placed over 120 lawyers in the Middle East, within the last five years, and our legal practice has placed over 2500 lawyers since 2001.

We have 40 consultants in our Legal Practice who specialise in placing lawyers in the Middle East, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Ireland, Caribbean, Channel Islands and in the UK. We have expertise in placing lawyers in house and in private practice on a permanent and temporary basis.

International moves generally take a few months longer than a local move so if you are thinking about moving abroad this year, now is the time to get in touch. A move to the Middle East offers an incredibly cosmopolitan lifestyle, tax free earnings and outdoor living. Given the rise in oil prices and a number of time sensitive projects to be delivered across the region in the next few years, many of our private practice and in house clients are looking for exceptional lawyers across all practice areas to join their offices in the Gulf. We work with organisations and firms in the UAE (Dubai/Abu Dhabi), Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

If you're actively seeking a new role, are interested in any of our live roles, planning on moving abroad or just want advice, please give me a call on the number below. Rowena To +44 (0) 20 7090 1640 (rowenato@hydrogengroup.com).

We are particularly keen to hear from lawyers in the following areas: Corporate M&A and Private Equity, Banking & Islamic Finance, Energy (renewables and oil & gas), Projects and Project Finance, Debt Capital Markets, TMT and Construction Arbitration and Front End Construction.
