Addleshaw Goddard opens office in Qatar
Addleshaw Goddard is increasing its capability across the Arabian Gulf and targeting further growth with the addition of a new office in Qatar — the firm’s third office opening in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region in the last nine months.
With bases in Doha, Dubai and Muscat, Addleshaw Goddard specialises in construction, projects, corporate, finance, arbitration, renewable energy, private wealth management and litigation across three jurisdictions in the GCC.
The Qatar office will be led by Hussein Damirji, formerly a partner at US law firm Patton Boggs, who specialises in corporate, commercial and family office (high-net-worth) investments. He will be joined by fellow partner Martin Brown, a banking and finance expert, who joins the firm from Denton’s Doha office. Damirji and Brown will be supported by a team of associates.
