Bird & Bird launches in Dubai
Bird & Bird has launched a new office in Dubai, bolstering its UAE presence alongside the Abu Dhabi office, which launched in 2011.
The firm has transferred Stockholm corporate partner Anders Nilsson to the Dubai office, where he joins a five-strong group of lawyers in the UAE. He has a number of client relationships in the region through his advisory work for Nordic investors and Middle Eastern clients expanding their operations in Sweden, and he will also act for Middle East-based clients looking to invest in Europe.
"We are very committed to continuing to grow our team in the region and Dubai is the base for many of the high tech innovators that are natural clients for the firm," commented Abu Dhabi office head Mark Pinder.
