I am Thomas Paoletti, Lawyer, born in Rome, of 53, married with three children, and living in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates since 2008.
I am a third-generation lawyer, specialising in Corporate and Commercial Law. I am particularly involved in joint ventures between/for Italy, the United Arab Emirates and China.
I am the President of the Italian Business Council of Dubai and the North Emirates, where more than 600 Italian businesses are located, both companies and professionals.
My qualifications are accredited at the Italian Embassy in Abu Dhabi, the Italian Consulate General in Dubai, as well as at the Emirates Authorities.
I love my family and dedicate as much time as possible to them.
I love: travelling, the sea (i am a scuba diver), art, theatre and, like all Italians, good food. I appreciate all people, whatever race or class they are, and i am particularly attracted by the oriental culture. I call myself a ‘pragmatic optimist’. I like empathy and i strive to keep a low profile. I can’t stand the know-it-all, the negativity and the sterile controversy. I surround myself, as far as possible, with optimistic and proactive people. I never set limits to learning. I think that life is a wonderful path made of experiences that will never find a goal.
