Alexandre Brazeau, technology partner said: "It's been an exciting year working with clients on innovative and leading-edge projects in emerging spaces such as virtual assets, Web3, AI and FinTech. Our clients are at the core of what we do and we look forward to continuing to support them across all technology-related sectors in 2023."

Tim Casben, managing partner commented: "I am delighted to see this recognition of the Technology team and our UAE firm. The last 12 months have seen many significant milestones for us across the board, including the opening of our office in Abu Dhabi and growth in terms of capacity and client demand across all our core practice areas of technology, IP, corporate, commercial and energy and infrastructure. Looking ahead, we already have some exciting announcements to come at the beginning of 2023 that will further strengthen our position in the market."

Gowling WLG's success at the Legal Era Awards is one of a number of achievements Gowling WLG's UAE teams have seen over 2022, including being shortlisted for "TMT Firm of the Year" and being named "Intellectual Property Firm of the Year" at the Chambers Middle East Legal Awards.
