“We have seen a continuous trend of UK and US law firms targeting Dubai. There are interesting debates about the depth of the market and what law firms can and should target in Dubai. Some law firms are using Dubai as their hub for the GCC and wider regions whereas other specialist firms are focusing on providing one particular area to the market. Charles Russell Speechlys have a stellar Private Client and Disputes brand and can differentiate themselves with great ease.
This is a natural move for Ghassan and the firm and we are excited to watch this develop”
