Mr Hayek will also chair the awards judging panel, which will be made up of general counsel and senior legal and business figures from the region.
The awards will be a celebration of legal excellence in the Middle East and will be open to in-house legal teams and law firms operating throughout the region. They will take place the day after the annual networking forum for general counsel in the Gulf, Legal Week Corporate Counsel Forum Middle East.
“We already have an excellent relationship with Legal Week thanks to our close involvement with their annual Legal Week Corporate Counsel Forum Middle East” said Mr Hayek. “We see this partnership as a natural extension of this close co-operation and are looking forward to working with Legal Week to establish these awards as a must-attend event in the Middle East legal calendar” he added.
