King & Spalding Opens Office in Abu Dhabi

June 3, 2008 King & Spalding, a leading international law firm, announced today the establishment of an office in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. With a total of 19 lawyers in its offices in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Riyadh, King & Spalding is one of the largest and fastest growing U.S. firms in the Middle East. King & Spalding said that it has received all regulatory approvals needed to open a law office in Abu Dhabi.

This latest move follows the expansion of King & Spalding's Middle East practice in April 2007 with the hiring of three senior lawyers in the Middle East -- finance partner Michael Dunphy in its Riyadh office (The Law Office of Mohammad Al-Ammar), and, in its Dubai office, mergers and acquisitions counsel Elias R. Chedid and private equity and funds counsel Jonathan Law.

King & Spalding is an international law firm with more than 800 lawyers in Abu Dhabi, Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, Dubai, Frankfurt, Houston, London, New York, Riyadh, San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Washington, D.C.
