London set 39 Essex Street is to open in Dubai later this year, The Lawyercan reveal.
It is understood the set will launch in the Middle East in November. The aim of the move is to better position 39 Essex Street in the global arbitration arena by giving barristers closer geographical links with the Dubai International Financial Centre.
