Pierre Kayrouz

Chief Legal Officer

With a triumphant history of 15 years in litigation and arbitration, Pierre Kayrouz has always been recognized as a leading practitioner in the nation because of his dedication to legal excellence and his proven record of distinguished success in some of the region’s most complex claims.

Acting for multi-national corporations, institutions, and individuals, both domestically and internationally, Kayrouz has a particularly strong record in construction legal fields along with law mastery in real estate, civil, commercial, property and environmental in the UAE. He holds extensive expertise in construction management, court document preparations and file pleadings before the court.

Excellent guidance and seamless legal support on construction disputes, construction defects, and land acquisition can be attributed to his vast experience, having continually represented key clients in the court of law and arbitration matters before DIFC – LCIA – DIAC and ICC.

Analyzing construction legal cases, determining liabilities for insurance companies and third-party subcontractors, handling cases related to death and injuries that occurred on construction sites, and mentoring junior construction lawyers are all parts of his skill assets as well.
