Wadkins Associates are excited to be working with a leading commercial law firm in Dubai to hire a qualified senior aviation lawyer. We have a good deal of experience in this region and have already established a strong relationship with the team’s hiring partner.

This opportunity comes as a result of continued ambitions to grow their aviation sector. The work covers both contentious and non-contentious aspects, with the majority of the work on the contentious side. This involves a variety of claims, predominantly advising and defending airlines and their insurers on regulatory matters as well as personal injury, baggage, and cargo matters. Non-contentious responsibilities centre around financing and leasing.

From our discussions with the partner, we can identify these benefits of joining the team:

  • Breadth of work: Enjoy a broad nature of work across the aviation industry, ensuring a variety of work that utilises your capabilities.
  • Dubai: With state-of-the-art infrastructure, great weather and lifestyle, Dubai is a prime choice for anyone looking to settle somewhere new.
  • Full responsibility for your cases: You would be working directly with the partner and with clients, free to handle your own files from start to finish.

The partner is only considering senior England & Wales qualified lawyers, with a minimum of 5 years PQE. A relocation package is available to facilitate moving to Dubai, including flights out and visa assistance.
