Middle East directory unveiled

The Middle East Association (MEA) has published a directory of its law firm members for use by businesses and organisations working in the UK and the Middle East.

The MEA was set up by British companies to promote trade between the UK and the Middle East. It is the largest organisation of its kind.

The 25 MEA law firm members are listed in the directory, with additional information on their particular skills. Member firms include Ashurst Morris Crisp, Clifford Chance, Freshfields, Nabarro Nathanson, Richards Butler, Clyde & Co, Stephenson Harwood, SJ Berwin & Co and Taylor Joynson Garrett.

The directory, which was put together by Nabarros partner Giles Dixon, will be distributed free of charge to all companies who are part of the MEA.

Dixon was the first ever solicitor elected chairman of the 27-year-old association, between 1995 and 1996.

Dixon said the lawyer members of the association were planning to raise their profile over the next couple of years. “This directory will help do this with both the MEA membership and in the Middle East generally,” he added.
