The repertoire of my experience includes one of Dubai’s worst dips led by global financial crisis to the recent boom fuelled by Dubai being awarded expo 2020.

I’ve been witness to the frantic Dubai, its mellowing down, and then the BOUNCING BACK!

The city has swung back into action far sooner than many others owing to the vision of its rulers, advanced infrastructure and its business friendly policies.

During my tenure in the UAE I have worked with Habib Al Mulla & Co. since 2008 which was subsequently, in 2013, merged with Baker & McKenzie, the largest law firm of the world.

This merger proved very valuable as it gave me comprehensive local law knowledge and exposure to fortune 500 clients.

Why you should hire me !Your matter is important to me and I handle all my cases personally from start to finish providing fast, responsive and professional service to my clients.

And if you need to talk with me I am just a call away.

I will make sure that your experience is as positive as possible. Getting hold of a partner or a senior lawyer at a larger law firms is relatively difficult, particularly for clients with realistic budgets, and as a result client’s questions and concerns may not be answered promptly. This makes the decision making process for client time-consuming and difficult.

This is where I make a difference!

Excellent client service that instills confidence and peace of mind is what I strive for.

When you should (or should not) hire me Some of the matters are so paper-intensive that involves endless paper-piles. This requires a big team of lawyers and throwing hundreds of thousands dollars to the matter. If you have a case like this, the bigger the law firm you chose the better.

When cost is the sole consideration, just hire the cheapest available lawyer or law firm in Dubai.

And if your matter falls in the middle 75% to 80%, than contact me immediately.

My beliefs Law firm’s practice of charging clients on hourly basis (or in six minute billing unit) hardly makes any sense to me. This way, the cost of work done is measured in time spent and not quality. There is minimal connection between the fees billed and the value provided. It generally rewards inefficiency.

To client’s it only offer uncertain costs and un-pleasant surprises.

And that is the reason why so many lawyer jokes are in circulation! :-)

For small and medium sized business legal costs are also a business risk.

I pride myself as commercially focused and my aim is to manage that risk by providing cost certainty to my clients.

I believe that my clients are always prepared to pay me fair for the value they receive.

My approach I analyse each matter with creativity with an aim to craft a solution keeping in mind legal position, goals and budget of my client.

This approach ensures that client is benefited the most unlike in larger law firms where the lawyers are under tremendous pressure to complete their target of billable hours. These unrealistic targets might potentially discourage objective discussions about what is best for the client as it may hurt the bottom line of the law firm.

Pricing My services are not cheap but are definitely cost effective.

My standard hourly rate (if a calculation is made on the fee paid and the value received) will come out lower than what the large law firms in Dubai charge for a junior associate’s time.

I don’t charge for every phone call I pick and every e-mail I write to my clients (or for that matter anything which is not connected to the real value I provide).

How do I manage this?

By maintaining strict control on overheads which typically forms up to 60% costs of a large law firm. Be it fixed fee, low hourly rates, cap on fee or appropriate combinations, I make sure that prices make strategic sense to my clients.
