CMS is launching its second Middle Eastern office in Oman following its September 2012 launch in Dubai.
The Oman office continues the firm’s international expansion strategy, which also saw it launch in Istanbul last year (7 November 2013) as well as Dubai (17 September 2012).
Like Dubai, Oman will have an energy, projects and financial institutions focus. Both offices will work closely together, with the team led by energy, projects and construction practice group manager Stephen Millar, Dubai managing partner Matthew Culver, and consultants Ben Ewing and Amur Al Rashdi.
Ewing trained at CMS before moving to Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, where he was a lawyer, while Al Rashdi joins CMS from local firm Khalifa Al Hinai.
Millar said the practice areas were growing across the Middle East and were strategically important areas for both the firm and its clients.
“Our strategy is to be where our clients need us to be, and a presence in Oman complements our global offering,” he added.
