Clyde & Co upgrades office in Saudi Arabia
Clyde & Co said it is only the second international law firm to gain regulatory approval to open a fully integrated office in the Kingdom
International law firm Clyde & Co has opened a fully integrated office in Saudi Arabia's capital city Riyadh.
The newly-formed structure will be headed by Abdulaziz Al-Bosaily whose law office has been closely associated with Clyde & Co for more than six years.
Ben Cowling, a specialist construction partner of Clyde & Co who has been resident in the Kingdom since 2012, will continue to be based in Riyadh and assist with the management of the office.
Clyde & Co said it is only the second international law firm to gain regulatory approval to open a fully integrated office in Saudi Arabia.
Al-Bosaily said: "Over the last six years, we have seen our Saudi practice go from strength to strength alongside the Kingdom's growing economy. This move ensures we can provide our clients with an even better service, fully utilising Clyde & Co's global network of expertise, alongside a solid base on-the-ground."
Boasting a team of 14 fee earners, 75% of whom are Saudi nationals, the team is supported by Clyde & Co's wider regional team of 170 lawyers based across four additional offices in the UAE, Qatar and Libya.
