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

"Jason was one of the most proactive and helpful recruiters I have dealt with. He identified a suitable position in the jurisdiction where I was considering a transfer, which I certainly would have not found on my own. He then made sure that communication with HR was continual and that the recruitment progressed." - Senior Associate, Guernsey

"Jason is by far the best recruiter I have ever worked with and his key strength is that he is genuinely open and honest with candidates. I've worked with recruiters before who I felt were willing to push me into roles that weren't suited to me and Jason stood out because I trusted his advice completely. Thanks to Jason I was able to secure a great position in the Cayman Islands and I haven't looked back since!"

"I couldn't recommend Jason highly enough. He has his finger on the pulse of the offshore legal world and is very professional to work with. He is also very responsive and knowledgeable on the practicalities of moving offshore, especially from London. Great to work with."
