Clydes in fresh push on Dubai

Clyde & Co has beefed up its Dubai office with the transfer of a key equity capital markets partner from the UK.

Catherine Moss will relocate to the Dubai office, taking the number of partners there to 11. She is the second Clydes partner to move in recent months following the relocation of partner Brian Nash.

Anthony Garrod, partner in the firm’s Dubai office, said: “Catherine’s transfer is an indication of the firm’s confidence in the further development of its operations in the UAE.”

“It will support the growth of the corporate practice in the Middle East, strengthening what we believe to already be the strongest team in the UAE.”

As first reported on www.thelawyer.com (15 March), Clifford Chance is also boosting its Dubai offering with the transfer of a three lawyer securities team from London. The trio includes partner Debashis Dey.
