Freshfields increases activity in Middle East

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer's finance partners Bob Charlton and Charles July, and corporate partner Ian Poynton, have recently relocated to the region. To date the firm has moved, and will continue to move, partners and associates in and out of the Middle East, in response to client demand and deal activity, to supplement the permanent team in the region. The moves will further strengthen the firm’s well established presence in the Middle East, with five partners and more than 40 lawyers based across the region in the firm’s offices in Dubai and Bahrain, and in Saudi Arabia through Freshfields’ association with Fares Al-Hejailan.
