Charles Russell Speechlys is pleased to share our latest results for Middle East Legal Awards 2019
We are delighted that our Middle East team has been announced as the winner of the Real Estate Team of the Year Award 2019 at the Middle East Legal Awards.
The Award was presented during the annual ceremony held on 18th April 2019 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel JBR in Dubai. The Middle East Legal Awards are one of the region’s premier industry awards for legal professionals, both in private practice and in-house, and are jointly hosted by Legal Week and the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Middle East chapter. These awards are presented annually to law firms, general counsel and in-house teams that have a presence in the Middle East and have demonstrated outstanding achievements in the legal profession.
In addition to being awarded Real Estate Team of the Year, we are also pleased to be Highly Commended for the Litigation Team of the Year Award 2019. These accolades are a testament to the quality and complexity of the work that we do across the Middle East region, and the strength and breadth of our practices in these two key areas of service. Our Real Estate practice in the region is broad and covers inward and outward investments as well as transactional and contentious work. Our Litigation practice covers local and regional dispute resolution with a strong emphasis on high-value complex cross-border cases. We are honoured by these latest awards and we would like to thank our clients for their trust in us, and for being a crucial part of our growth and success.
