Building your career at Freshfields

Explaining the culture of a firm is always difficult. But we think ours is special.

Like other international law firms, we have offices in many capital cities, and we have busy, sometimes long, working days. We serve demanding clients, with needs in every possible corner of the world. Big or small, commercial or institutional, what our clients all have in common is the sheer ambition and complexity of what they want to achieve. Put simply, they hire Freshfields when it matters most.

A career at Freshfields carries a few promises. You will not be bored. You will face problems you haven’t seen before. You’ll meet interesting and friendly people, and you’ll always work in teams. Teamwork calls for a genuine interest in other people and acceptances of differences. It also means an exceptional willingness to pitch in to get the job done.

The sections below describe (as far as they can in a few words!) what you might expect from life at Freshfields, and professional opportunities across the firm.

Freshfields is well established as one of the most significant global legal practices in the Middle East and North Africa.

We have offices in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain and an alliance firm in Saudi Arabia. These offer an entrepreneurial edge and vibrancy unique to the jurisdictions in which we operate.

We’ve built a reputation for excellence in our three core practice areas: corporate, finance and dispute resolution.

We have over 40 lawyers operating in the Middle East, many of them bilingual English/Arabic speakers. We’ve also nurtured a network of local law firms across the region to advise on local law issues.

We are the only magic circle law firm in Bahrain and are regarded as the most high-profile global practice in the Kingdom. In Saudi Arabia we work with our alliance firm the law firm of Salah Al-Hejailan, one of the Kingdom's most respected and well-established firms. Whether you join as a lawyer, graduate or business services professional, you’ll play a part in one of the region’s most exciting legal teams.
