We recently launched Peerpoint in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The expansion brings with it exciting possibilities, not only for clients in the region looking to make the most of best-in-class interim legal resourcing solutions, but also for lawyers looking for different ways to progress their careers through legal consultancy.
Over the last few years, we have seen a rise in demand from clients in the UAE for flexible resourcing solutions. Coupled with a high degree of talent movement in the regional market, we believe that legal consulting can provide great opportunities for UAE-based lawyers who want to access complex and rewarding work on a temporary basis.
Operating from our regional hub in Dubai, our initial focus will be on Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Our expansion into the Middle East market means Allen & Overy is the first leading international law firm to offer flexible resourcing expertise in the UAE region.
For our clients, the ability to access high calibre expertise without being constrained by regional boundaries is key to our truly global expertise and support. And with Peerpoint being part of A&O’s Advanced Delivery and Solutions business, it’s also another opportunity to bring our integrated solutions to more clients globally.
Commenting on the launch, Jenny Grotepass – Senior Manager of Strategy and Business Growth, Peerpoint said “As home to so many innovative businesses and cutting-edge projects, it’s a really exciting moment for Peerpoint to add to A&O’s growing Advanced Delivery and Solutions presence in the UAE. We can’t wait to build new relationships and meet lawyers looking for a new way to work.”
Over the last couple of months, through a combination of remote support from our existing consultant panel and new legal consultants within the region we have already been able to support clients and A&O teams. This flexible approach has been particularly important at a time when travel and face-to-face working has been restricted.
