‘I have been a real estate practitioner my whole career and we are one of the few leading law firms in the UAE that has a dedicated real estate practice,’ says Ashraf Sayed, partner and head of real estate at Hadef Partners.
Having joined the firm over 17 years ago as a junior solicitor, he now represents property developers, funds and HNW private clients. He tells Spear’s that 2021 and 2022 were incredibly successful for Hadef Partners.
One notable accomplishment was acting on the sale of a $163 million home (£133.5 million) which Sayed says ‘was one of the most expensive villas sold globally in 2022’.
What’s next for Sayed? He hopes to continue ‘extending [his team]’ and the firm’s ‘reputation as the leading real estate law practice in the UAE’.
