The appointment is timely with Middle East based law firms expected to boost numbers on the back of favourable market conditions, as Rogers explains, “Qatar is hosting the World Cup this year, Abu Dhabi is launching a new international financial centre and Dubai is planning for the Dubai Expo in 2020. These events mean huge growth potential in these territories, which can be served by both British and local lawyers. We have already made a number of successful senior level legal placements, both in private practice and in-house positions, and are set to expand the team.”
“It’s a very exciting move for the company,” adds Douglas Scott MD Kathryn Riley. "We are now the largest private practice recruiter in the UK. Turnover was up 35% in 2013 and headcount up 50% over the same period. International was a logical step for the company and take up has been phenomenal - we are currently recruiting for two new consultants to joint Faye’s team to help it expand.”
Douglas Scott is the only REC registered legal recruitment specialist with ISO9001 accreditation.
