Doing Business in Dubai?

Dubai is a land of opportunity; it’s an international centre for business in diverse markets, growing sustainably. It’s also a cultural melting pot, filled with expats from around the world, and more activities and experiences than you can possibly imagine finding in one city. Are you doing business in Dubai? Thinking of moving to the Emirates? Or maybe you're considering opening up an office in the region? On 16th of December, Felice Hurst, our Dubai Director, will be in our London office offering information and advice on relocating to the UAE and opening up an office there. Felice will be giving a group talk on the evening of the 16th focusing on relocating and working in Dubai (and the Emirates more widely). Felice will shed light on her experiences and cover many topics, including:

  • What it’s like to work in Dubai
  • The realities of living and working there
  • The difficulties of the relocation
  • The benefits of the relocation

There will be a Q&A opportunity following the talk. Book your place for Relocating to Dubai Felice is also available for private appointments to discuss opening an office in Dubai, covering:
