TWO PARTNERS NAMED ‘EXTERNAL COUNSEL OF THE YEAR’

Hadef & Partners is delighted to announce that two of our partners, Mr Tarik El Bakri from the Abu Dhabi office and Mr Michael Lunjevich from the Dubai office, have been named as External Counsel of the Year by the Asian-MENA Counsel.
 
Tarik El–Bakri, Head of Commercial was described by in house counsel as being "My focal point ... – professionalism and a quick response are his main attributes." while Michael Lunjevich, Partner and the Head of the Commercial and Real Estate teams in Dubai was praised for “[his] responsiveness. He understands our business and is commercial – he's always looking for a solution."
 
The Asian-MENA Counsel is a community that represents corporate in-house counsel across Asia & the Middle East. They conduct an annual survey, the largest of in-house counsel and clients across Asia and the Middle East [with over 20,000 contributors] and the accolades are based entirely upon the votes and testimonials of the in-house counsel who took part in 2013.
 
What makes this especially pleasing for Hadef & Partners is that only ten lawyers are named each year, so for two to be from Hadef & Partners reconfirms to us that we are delivering to our clients the service they need.
