International law firm Taylor Wessing has appointed Head of the firm's Middle East group, Partner Ronald Graham, as the Managing Partner of its Dubai office.

Regarded as one of the world's leading lawyers in the private wealth sector, Ronald has also led the firm's Private Wealth sector group in the UK since 2019.

Ronald has been a familiar presence in the Dubai office leading the firm's Middle East group and has developed an extensive network. He is a recognised expert in the region having acted for families and funds in the Middle East since 2000, representing clients in Saudi Arabia, UAE and Kuwait.

The appointment follows the retirement and completion of Osama Hassan's term as Managing Partner. Osama will continue to work with the firm as a consultant.

Ronald's significant experience and successful leadership make him the natural choice for the role. He will continue to lead new growth opportunities in the Middle East and develop the firm's Private Wealth sector offering for its clients.

New Dubai Managing Partner Ronald Graham said: "We have a hugely talented team based in the Middle East and a distinct reputation for our expertise in the private wealth and technology sectors. These are areas we will continue to invest in as the influence of Dubai as one of the world's leading technology hubs continues to offer new businesses and wealthy individuals looking to invest, opportunities for expansion into and out of the US and Europe. We are committed to building ever-stronger relationships with our clients and fuelling their success in the region through creativity and teamwork." 

UK Managing Partner Shane Gleghorn continued: "With Ronald's reputation and expertise of the Middle East, and his leadership of the Private Wealth sector, he is an assured successor in the Dubai office who is focused on delivering new growth opportunities to our Middle East strategy. Osama has built a tremendous network and reputation in the Middle East region over his 30+ year career, which we will benefit from, and we are delighted that he continues to work with us as a consultant."

Retiring partner Osama Hassan said: "I am delighted to have come back to the firm and to have been part of the integration of the Middle East offices with the wider firm. I am looking forward to working with the firm as a consultant."


Private Wealth is one of the firm's core international sectors. Ronald is a corporate lawyer with an extensive network comprising wealthy families, investors, large corporates and intermediaries. The international presence he has established as a regular partner in the Dubai office and as Head of the firm's Middle East group will support the increasing hub of activity and wealth of opportunities for corporate entities and private investors.

Ronald Graham has moved to Dubai and will be based between London and Dubai looking ahead.
