Trowers & Hamlins has formed an exclusive association with Syrian firm Sultans Law, making it one of the first international law firms to move into Syria.
The tie-up comes after Trowers advised the Syrian government ;on ;social housing and other matters.
The UK firm is also pursuing work with Gulf-based and western clients, targeting the ;country’s ;fledgling projects sector, and wants to access neighbouring Iraq.
Trowers projects partner Adrian Creed, who spearheaded the alliance, said: “This is going to be a long-term relationship. We’re quite happy to go to less-mature ;markets ;while everyone else is heading to the United Arab Emirates.”
Trowers worked with Sultans managing partner Samer Sultan when he was seconded to Creed’s team in London.
Trowers will second a lawyer to Damascus, while Syrian lawyers will receive training at its Gulf offices.
