LG has become the latest London firm to launch an office in Dubai.

Office head, LG construction partner, James Foster, said the emphasis will be on corporate, finance and projects and construction.

Foster commented: “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.”

Foster, who is now 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: “I think we have a number of unique selling points. We will be playing to our traditional strengths including private capital. Not many firms in Dubai at the moment have a presence in this area.”
