LG has become the latest London firm to launch an office in Dubai.
LG construction partner James Foster will head an office focusing on corporate, finance, projects and construction, as first revealed on www.thelawyer.com (12 November).
Foster said: "I think we have a number of unique selling points. We'll be playing to our traditional strengths, including private capital. Not many firms in Dubai at the moment have a presence in this area."
Foster, who is based permanently in the new office, will be supported by the London office, with partners in the corporate, finance, projects and private capital practice groups visiting the region regularly.
Foster said: "The launch is very much client-driven and we feel we can service clients even better by having a presence in Dubai. Having an office in Dubai means we can link the work we do in India and the Far East."
