Partners

Our partner legal search team is one of the leaders in the market both across the Middle East and internationally. We have long established relationships with the majority of the leading US, UK and international law firms operating throughout the UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia as well as many of the leading domestic practices throughout the region.

Our team has been responsible for some of the most high profile moves across the region and have built up an unrivalled track record at partner level.

Each search is bespoke. We work closely with the senior decision makers at each client to establish exactly what talent would best benefit their business, updating them on the current market and advising in realistic terms how successful their search will be. Our clients are all different. Our quality of service to each of them has to be consistently excellent.

Our Methodology

We approach all lawyers in a highly sensitive and confidential manner, introducing new opportunities only to those who we think fit our client’s instructions and culture. We spend time with each of our clients to agree messaging before we approach the market in order to ensure that there is a consistent picture.

We have a dedicated research function and our team is continually mapping the market across the Middle East and around the world. Therefore, we are able to identify the right lawyers, with the right qualifications very quickly and to deadlines.  Our international network also means that clients have access to the very best talent around the world.

Once a short list has been agreed SSQ will manage the entire process: agreeing the messaging with the client; meeting with candidates in the first instance; setting up meetings for the client with candidates; advising on business plans and helping clients formulate and deliver offers.
