Clyde & Co bolsters real estate practice with Dubai partner hire
Peter Greatrex will focus on Saudi Arabia and Oman as he operates out of the law firm's Dubai office
Peter Greatrex has joined as a partner in Clyde & Co’s real estate and hospitality practice in its Dubai office, with a particular focus on Saudi Arabia and Oman.
With more than 10 years’ experience in the Middle East, the international law firm’s latest addition has spent 12 years with Towers & Hamlin – most recently in the firm’s Bahrain practice between April 2014 and September 2017.
He then led the firm’s UAE and Oman real estate team from September 2017 in Tower & Hamlin's Dubai office.
Clyde & Co said Greatrex has particular expertise in “large pathfinder public private partnerships (PPP), advising public- and private-sector clients on a range of mandates in the housing, transportation, and infrastructure sectors”.
He is also an expert in the delivery of affordable housing, having worked on significant projects for the Governments of Abu Dhabi, Oman, and Kuwait.
Speaking on the addition, Alexis Waller, partner and head of real estate and hospitality for the Middle East at Clyde & Co, said: “Peter's strong regional property experience and his reputation in the field of PPP and affordable housing projects will be a key addition to drive the growth of our practice across the region."
“I am looking forward to bringing my experience to a firm with such a recognised market-leading real estate practice,” Greatrex added.
“Capitalising on Clyde & Co's established network in the Middle East, my practice is well-placed to complement and develop the firm's current real estate and hospitality offering across our key regional markets."
