Lawyers practising in the UAE command higher average salaries than in any other country in the world, new figures from Acritas show.
The UK-based organisation has revealed to Emirates Business that in addition to being a long-established epicentre for regional excellence in law, the UAE rewards its solicitors and barristers with higher salaries than any other country.
And in news that may interest legal practitioners considering investing in property for sale in Dubai, Acritas found that the emirate offers the highest hourly rates globally.
"We've seen a huge influx of lawyers from the UK, the US and Australia because of attractive salaries and better probability of becoming partners in the company," said Ian Giulianotti, associate director of HRM Consulting at Nadia Recruitment, speaking to the paper.
Acritas provides specialist professional research services for both the public and private sector and primarily operates in the UK, Europe and the US.
