Hogan Lovells has bulked up its Middle East infrastructure and project finance practice by redeploying London-based project finance partner Christopher Cross to its Dubai office.
Cross has worked on infrastructure, construction and public private partnership (PPP/PFI) projects for over 10 years, with a particular emphasis on transport and infrastructure.
He is set to relocate to Dubai this month, and will work closely with partners Rahail Ali, Rustum Shah and Jay Gede across the finance and corporate practices.
Adrian Walker, co-head of Hogan Lovells’ global infrastructure and project finance team, said: “The Middle East offers exciting opportunities in the infrastructure and energy sectors for our existing clients. Chris will strengthen our offering in the region and ensure we can provide a first-class service to clients active in the region in a broad range of sectors.
“Chris will be able to draw on the strong existing regional resources Hogan Lovells currently has in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Saudi Arabia to ensure we have capacity to manage large transactions.”
Co-managing partner of the Dubai office Nick Parden added: “[Chris] is an experienced infrastructure and project finance lawyer and will be a great addition to our Middle East team.”
