Al Tamimi & Co creates first of its kind ESG role

With ESG sitting at the top of the business agenda and being more prominent than ever, the region’s leading law firm has appointed Hamza Al-Haboubi (pictured) as its dedicated ESG Consultant.

“Having Hamza at the firm strengthens our ESG offer and capabilities, and ensures our clients have the expertise available to them when assessing their ESG requirements.” 

On joining Al Tamimi & Company, Hamza Al-Haboubi said:
