Training from a leading law firm, coupled with In-House experience in similar Investment management companies will be of great benefit, as will a professional focus on Corporate M&A Legal work.

Relevant applicants for this role will be in possession of the following criteria:

  • Legally qualified from a renowned jurisdiction, with 7-10 Years PQE.
  • Specific exposure in Corporate Finance, Corporate M&A, and/or Wealth Management.
  • Native Arabic proficiency (reading, writing, drafting).
  • Ideally a mixture of Private Practice and In-House experience (although applicants coming direct from Private Practice will be considered).
  • Prior or current experience in the GCC, ideally with Shariah-compliant Saudi law.
