Mantle Law.

Mantle Law is a UAE-based firm comprising leading dispute and arbitration lawyers with a distinctive focus on the construction, infrastructure and energy sectors. Reflecting the region we call home, our client base is progressive, diverse and truly international. 

We’ve designed a remarkable new law firm; one that is future-facing, hierarchy-free and proudly independent. In fact, we’re a unique, independent international litigation and arbitration specialist, firmly embedded in the region and the local legal community.

We’re also home to some of the brightest legal minds in the business; practitioners who pride themselves on overpowering and out-thinking the competition at every turn. It’s supported by a unique and progressive client service agenda, where every aspect of our approach is tailored to the specific needs of the project or dispute.

Why Mantle Law?

Want lawyers at the top of their game who are passionate about embedding themselves in your organisation?

Here are three reasons why you should choose Mantle Law:

  1. Clients want to engage with their legal advisers in a new way; we’re a modern firm that embraces technology and the latest working practices to offer a more effective and agile service. This means we’re faster and more reactive.
  2. We’re unique in the UAE – having specialists, not generalists, means you are dealing with experts who will immediately add value, always.
  3. We’re disrupters and innovators; as well as being great to work with we are able to offer levels of value, in a turbulent world, which are not currently available, or even
    possible, elsewhere in the market.

What they’re saying about us.

Legal 500 has described our Founder as: “Heywood has exceptional knowledge of Middle East culture and contracts”.

What do the most important people, clients, say?

“We have been waiting for a new type of law firm which maintains or improves the standard of legal advice in the region whilst reducing the seemingly ever-increasing costs of dispute resolution.”
UAE Contractor

“The large international law firms fail to recognise the pressures that businesses operating in this region are under, and are traditionally slow to react. We expect our lawyers to be more in tune with our business; Mat and his team always deliver.”
International Infrastructure Company

Mantle in the community

We’re firmly embedded in the UAE professionally and personally which is why we are so passionate about giving something back to the local community, the focus of our pro bono efforts.

As a new firm, we’re less encumbered by traditional working practices. We can offer our people flexibility over their working arrangements which helps enhance the diversity of our team, compared to other organisations in the region.

And with the technology and agile working methods we’ve adopted, we can minimise our impact on the environment too.
