International law firm Pinsent Masons was awarded Middle East Property and Construction Team of the Year 2012 at the Legal Week Corporate Counsel Middle East Awards Ceremony 2012 in Dubai last night. The team beat off stiff competition from a large number of international and regional firms.

 Sachin Kerur, Head of Pinsent Masons' office in the UAE commented: "We are very proud of our construction team here, the largest of any firm in the Middle East.  We are delighted to have received this prestigious award which is the synthesis of the effort the team has put in throughout the year.

 During the last year Pinsent Masons has won awards for the  leading construction law firm in every region where the firm has operations.
