Chadbourne’s presence in the Middle East is principally managed out of our Dubai office, which has a broad-based international commercial practice with an emphasis on work in the Gulf Arab States, including joint ventures and new businesses, investments, contracts, complex and international dispute resolution and arbitration, and due diligence and legal investigations. Drawing on the worldwide expertise and resources of Chadbourne, the Dubai office is also building the capabilities of project finance, private equity, and complex cross-border mergers and acquisitions.
The office’s current clients are from the United States and Canada, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries, Europe, Asia and Africa.
