Abdulla Ziad Galadari is a Senior Partner within Galadari Advocates & Legal Consultants, where he is the principal professional behind the growth strategies of many private and public organisations, who today continue to develop under his strategic input. He is a key influencer across the UAE, having supported a diverse range of businesses and senior dignitaries to navigate the legal framework of the country. Furthermore, he has been recognised as a regional ‘Leading Professional’ by Legal 500.
Aside from his technical and professional remit, he is the strategic leader behind the firm’s progressive approach, which has seen the introduction of global lawyers being introduced, key insights being shared with the market, along with developing and executing a technology driven strategy which will continue to drive innovation within the profession.
To further fortify his position as a leading professional, Abdulla has been the key driving force behind supporting leading legal professionals to continue their development through the initiation and execution of the collaboration with the Government of Dubai Legal Affairs, where we have created, developed and delivered a continuing professional legal development course (CPD).
Furthermore, he actively supports the young Emirati leaders of tomorrow through initiatives which include providing internships and training contracts for young students and new graduates. This has resulted in over 30 Emirati lawyers fulfilling the requirements of the Ministry of Justice to obtain a federal lawyer’s license, so that they may continue to provide ongoing impact to the country.
