He understands our business and is commercial – he’s always looking for a solution”

The Asian-MENA Counsel is a community who represent 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 and the accolades are based entirely upon the votes and testimonials of the in-house counsel who took part in the 2013.

What make this especially pleasing for Hadef & Partners is that only 10 lawyers are named each year, so for 2 to be from Hadef really confirms to us that we are delivering to our clients what they need.
