Alex Ghazi joins Al Tamimi & Company
Al Tamimi & Company has announced their latest head of office recruit, Alex Ghazi, former group general counsel and company secretary for Arabtec Holding PJSC, based in Abu Dhabi.
Ghazi has over 21 years experience having spent most of his career as a corporate and commercial lawyer, involved in various international transactions. Over the years, he led various legal teams and departments in different industrial sectors, starting from real estate development, to automotive, to construction.
He obtained his LLM (Masters Degree) in International Business Law in 1993, from France, and after training and working with Clifford Chance in Paris and Dubai. He then moved to Marriott International in Dubai and then London, heading the legal department for Europe and the Middle East. Ghazi later became the chief legal officer for Abdul Latif Jameel in Jeddah before joining Arabtec, in July 2013 as chief legal officer for Arabtec Construction.
On his appointment, Alex Ghazi stated, “With the on-going mergers in Abu Dhabi, there is an evident paradigm shift in the market: the focus has turned to productivity, profitability and accountability. With the increased competition, the rules and regulations become stricter and all the players will need to ensure full and continued compliance. But above all, they will also require a clearer vision of the anticipated changes. Al Tamimi, with its vast local experience and regional presence, should be the right business partner to help evolve and adapt to the new market conditions. With Al Tamimi’s reputation in the region and the quality of the Abu Dhabi office team, it was not a difficult decision for me to make. I am delighted to embark on this new and exciting journey.”
