Abu Dhabi senior associate honoured by Tourism Development and Investment Company

Trowers & Hamlins is pleased to announce that Peter Hawkes, an International Real Estate senior associate in the firm's Abu Dhabi office, has won an award from a client of the firm in recognition of his work.

Peter has been recognised as "Best Individual Consultant" to Tourism Development and Investment Company PJSC (TDIC), a government-owned master developer of major tourism, cultural and residential destinations in Abu Dhabi.

Peter received his award from His Excellency Ali Majed Al Mansoori, Chairman of TDIC and member of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council.

"TDIC is a very important client of the firm," said Abdul-Haq Mohammed, Head of Trowers & Hamlins' International Real Estate team.  "Peter has provided considerable commitment and expertise to TDIC during his time there, working with a range of departments within the organisation as well as other key stakeholders.  He has demonstrated commercial acumen and rigorous legal skills in navigating the challenges faced by major developers like TDIC."

Peter has been seconded to TDIC since July 2013 and advises on the delivery and structuring of major construction and real estate projects across the TDIC portfolio.  In particular, he is leading Trowers & Hamlins' advice to TDIC on the strategically important museum projects being developed in the Cultural District of Saadiyat Island, including the Louvre Abu Dhabi.
