Building on Latham’s substantial experience advising companies and financial institutions operating in the Middle East, the firm began creating a physical presence in the region in 2008.

Latham & Watkins’ Middle East offices recruit newly qualified and experienced lawyers with exceptional academic achievement and who are accredited to practice law in the United Kingdom, United States, Europe, or our local offices. Ideal candidates will have deep experience on sophisticated transactional matters in the Middle East region and the highest commitment to quality and client service. In particular, we are interested in lawyers who can work fluently in Arabic and/or who have strong ties to the region.
