Job Description & Summary

PwC Legal Middle East

PwC Legal Middle East is a multiple award-winning regional team of over 65 lawyers and legal professionals working across Corporate & Commercial (particularly M&A and Restructuring), Financial Services & FinTech, Energy & Projects, Employment & Reward, Immigration, Corporate Governance, Entity Incorporations & Compliance and NewLaw. Globally, we are part of the largest legal network in the world and we have over 3,500 lawyers in over 100 countries.

Our lawyers and legal professionals work alongside PwC’s traditional service lines, providing a truly integrated “one stop shop” service offering alongside Tax, Deals, Consulting and Assurance services. We provide technically sound, practical advice and look to embrace technology in everything we do.

Our Employment & Reward practice provides a broad range of strategic advice and assistance to an even broader range of clients, from start ups to government bodies and some of the largest multi national companies in the world. No two days are the same as the team provides regional assistance in respect of the entire spectrum of employment law issues, including: day to day employee management matters, reward and executive compensation structures, pensions, transactional support in the context of corporate activities and workplace investigations. The practice is unlike any other employment law team in the market. It is involved in some of the most novel and exciting work across the region and is growing at a significant pace. This role provides a unique opportunity to be at the cutting edge of legal services working on genuinely interesting matters.
