Gowling WLG has been shortlisted for TMT Team of the Year at the 2022 Middle East Legal Awards.
Alexandre Brazeau, head of the firm's Middle East technology practice, has also been shortlisted in the Rising Star category.
Hosted by Law.com International and in partnership with the ACC Middle East & North Africa, the awards celebrate achievement, excellence and innovation in the legal profession. The awards are now in their tenth year and are recognised as one of the region's premier legal awards.
Although a relatively new entrant to the market with the practice entering its fourth year of operation, Gowling WLG's UAE technology team has established itself as go-to legal advisors for some of the region's largest tech companies.
Alexandre has grown the team over the last six months to meet increasing client demand for bespoke legal solutions for emerging and innovative technology, especially in relation to digital transformation projects, FinTech and AI. The team continues to be recognised by the market as a leading practice having won TMT Team of the Year at the Legal Era Middle East Awards in 2021 and at The Oath Middle East Awards in 2019.
Winners of the Middle East Legal Awards will be announced on Thursday 12 May.
