Legal Jobs in Doha

The Doha legal sector is characterised by a relatively small number of international firms, with relatively small teams, doing exceptionally high-level work. For those who settle here it offers an opportunity to gain first-class exposure in an environment that rewards client facing lawyers who thrive on a varied workload. No two days are likely to be the same and it is an exciting place to practice, particularly if you’re involved in a core area like construction.

After hours you will find that Qatar has plenty to offer. From the high-end restaurants and luxury shops of The Pearl-Qatar to the labyrinth of alleys that forms one of the Middle East’s most evocative souqs, this is a place that offers all the mod-cons with no shortage of history and culture on the side. Firmly established as a destination on the global sports and entertainment circuit, you will have more than just the next FIFA World Cup to look forward to.

Thanks to its abundant natural resources, Qatar is one of the richest countries in the world. It has used its wealth to put itself on the map. It is building infrastructure and facilities at a remarkable pace creating a raft of opportunities for Common Law lawyers at all levels from newly qualified upwards, in the construction and projects sector, as well as more mainstream corporate and dispute resolution.

If you would like to find out more about legal jobs in Qatar, the international team at Origin Legal is ideally placed to help. We can provide advice on which firms to approach, support you in drafting a CV and profile, assist you in preparing for the interviews and help you when it comes to finalising a deal.

Testimonials

Associate, Guernsey

"Whilst searching for an NQ role, I came across multiple recruitment consultants who were all too willing to push me in to roles that were not suited to me. Jason took the time to truly understand my requirements, listened to my concerns, and importantly, gave frank and honest advice. He went over and above to help me secure my dream job and I genuinely cannot recommend him highly enough." - Associate, Guernsey

Candidate
