DLA launches in Abu Dhabi while other top firms still waiting for licenses

April 20, 2008 DLA Piper is to formally launch in Abu Dhabi later this month, with projects and finance partner Stephen Webb -- currently based at the firm's Dubai office -- appointed office managing partner.

The launch comes as Clifford Chance, Herbert Smith, Ashurst, Eversheds, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld and Latham & Watkins all wait for licences to open in Abu Dhabi, despite announcing their intention to launch in the region months ago.
