PwC’s legal arm in the Middle East has thrown down the gauntlet to rival law firms as it expands in the region, leveraging its global reach as it markets itself as a full-service firm that integrates legal advice with the massive accounting firm’s traditional tax and auditing offerings.

“Our entire modus operandi is to be a part of a multidisciplinary one-stop shop,” said Darren Harris, legal leader and head of corporate for PwC Legal Middle East. “With PwC, we go to market and provide more holistic solutions and better outcomes for our clients. That is our differentiator.”
