Law firm Fenwick Elliott steps up UAE, Saudi Arabia operations
Construction and energy law firm reveals plans to convert its Dubai office in JLT into its global hub
UK-headquartered construction and energy law firm Fenwick Elliott has revealed plans to relaunch its Dubai office – located in the Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT) neighbourhood – as its global hub in a bid to strengthen its international presence.
Located in Dubai’s Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT), the company serves the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Oman in the region.
The firm’s Dubai office employs around 50 people, and was opened in 2015 alongside Ibrahim Law Firm. It is headed by partners Patrick Stone and Ahmed Ibrahim.
The move comes in line with the company’s plans to capitalise on increasing demand for its services in the UAE and Saudi Arabia over the next 12 to 18 months.
Commenting on the development, Stone said: “It’s an exciting time to be at the forefront of our Dubai operation as we look to cement our presence in the UAE and explore new opportunities further afield.
“We are continually investing in our business here and to make way for new faces and improved facilities,” Stone continued, adding that Fenwick Elliott would also look to move into a larger space in the coming months."
