Corporate Commercial

At Gowling WLG, we pride ourselves on the entrepreneurial, commercial and practical approach we take to all our corporate work. Having been based in Dubai for more than ten years' we've developed an in-depth understanding of the region's laws and culture.

We act for clients on their inbound investment into the region and institutional clients based here and abroad on regional and international M&A, debt & equity raisings and IPO's particularly for regionally based clients looking for exposure to the London markets.

The Corporate Commercial team is led by Tim Casben who has over 20 years' experience of corporate transactional work and over ten years spent with the firm in London before moving to Dubai in 2009.

We advise local and international companies on a wide range of corporate matters, including:

  • Establishing and conducting business in the UAE
  • Financial services and regulation
  • Investment funds
  • IPOs
  • Joint ventures
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Private equity
