US firm Chadbourne & Parke is relaunching in Dubai after a 14-year absence, giving the energy-strong firm its eighth international office.
The eight-lawyer Dubai office will be led by Jack Greenwald, who was a partner in the firm's original Dubai office. He left in 1989 to open his own boutique, Greenwald Legal Consultancy.
Greenwald said: "In my 20 years of living and practising law here, I’ve watched Dubai grow and prosper. As a lawyer and member of the community, I’ve advised clients on how best to take advantage of new opportunities in an evolving legal environment."
The Dubai office, effective from 1 May, extends Chadbourne's footprint to the Middle East, although it already has five offices across the CIS and Eastern Europe.
Chadbourne managing partner Charles O'Neill said in a statement: "Given the strength of our energy and project finance and cross-border acquisition practices, we decided the time has come to commit substantial resources to a more visible presence in the region. Dubai was the natural choice because of our continuing work there and its growth as a world financial centre."
