Andrew Fawcett promoted to partner at Al Tamimi in Abu Dhabi

Andrew Fawcett has been promoted to partner at Al Tamimi & Company in Abu Dhabi, where he is a member of the firm’s digital and data team. Fawcett’s promotion was one of six across the region, bringing the firm’s total number of partners to 81 across 16 offices in nine countries, following the promotion of seven in January 2021.

Fawcett has more than 20 years of specialist digital and data experience. He is a telecoms expert and has become one of the leading specialists in the Middle East on cloud-based technology deals, including government procurement and information security requirements in regards to cloud services. He has advised major clients on a variety of complex contractual issues and commercial transactions, especially in connection with the launch of new platforms and services. He has assisted government departments and government-owned entities in diversification projects that invest in technological developments and improve innovation. He also provides important UAE local law advisory services to multinationals (either directly or through international law firms) in respect of their TMT sector plans in the Middle East.

Prior to joining Al Tamimi, Fawcett was a TMT principal at Lowndes Associates in Auckland. He moved to the UAE in late 2013. He is a contributing author to various international publications on topics such as e-commerce, software protection media, advertising and entertainment law.

“As a firm, we are committed to ensuring that our most talented lawyers receive the recognition they deserve. In light of the impact the pandemic has had on businesses across the region, to promote 13 lawyers to partner over the last year is a wonderful achievement for our colleagues and the firm,” said Samer Qudah, managing partner at Al Tamimi & Company in Dubai. “This is a significant career milestone for our new partners and is a testament to their hard work and dedication. The achievement highlights the skills and talent of our people, as well as the resilience and ambition of Al Tamimi & Company as a law firm.”
