One of our current MDs went Mck AP > Abraaj Operating Partner before joining Alix

Whilst it’s not Dubai, another reference point, I worked for one of the sovereign wealth funds in Abu Dhabi. A lot of ex consultants boomerang back to the firms they joined from when they find their ceiling after a few years

I am considering switching practice areas. I currently practice in personal injury litigation on the defense side. I have been in the PI practice in some way, shape or form for the last 9 years. However, I think it’s time for a change for me. I have always found trust and estate work to be interesting and would like to transition into that area of practice, on both the litigation and planning end of it. I am looking for guidance as to how to switch over. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
