Things to Consider When Hiring International Law Firms

Posted by Al Rowaad Advocates & Legal Consultants on April 4th, 2022

Choosing from among the many international law firms in Dubai can become daunting when you realise the number of options available. How can you tell which law firm will have your best interest and effectively help you overcome your legal problems or fulfil your legal obligations? One of the ways to do that is to look into certain factors that make certain international law firms stand out. Here are some of the things to consider:


The law firm’s staff and lawyers should speak your language. They should have relevant experience in their respective practice areas so you can be more confident in their ability to address your unique circumstances.

The lawyers

Hire international law firms in Dubai with ‘advocates’ and ‘legal consultants’ on their team. You might require the services of both professionals. Legal consultants can offer legal advice and help with documentation and other relevant matters. But if you need a lawyer to represent you in court or for litigation, you need a licensed advocate.


The law firm must be duly licensed to provide legal services and advocacy in Dubai and the UAE. Get familiar with the practice areas, too. Some of the best international law firms specialise in fields; such as family, civil, corporate, criminal, and banking, transport, labour, maritime, and property laws. They also have experience in litigation and arbitration.

Success stories and testimonials

Take some time to read some of the success stories of prospective international law firms in Dubai. Check if they have worked on cases similar to yours so you can determine how effective they are at resolving the type of legal problem you’re facing. You can also read testimonials about the law firm to learn what previous clients said about their experience when they hired it. Just remember to take their feedback with a grain of salt.


Reputable international law firms in Dubai are transparent with their fees by keeping every client informed of all the costs related to individual cases. The law firm must keep its clients updated about extra fees or changes. Find out how they charge their clients, too. Some firms charge based on the assigned lawyer\'s level of experience and seniority; and the importance, complexity, and urgency of the case.
