Charles Russell opens office in Qatar
Following on from the move to larger office premises in Bahrain on 1 July 2013 and as a result of continuing expansion in the region, Charles Russell has opened an office in Doha, Qatar.
The new office comes as a result of feedback from existing clients and contacts in Qatar for an "on the ground" Charles Russell presence.
Based in the business district of Westbay, the office will allow the firm to offer both existing and new clients in the GCC’s fastest growing economy access to comprehensive legal services delivered locally.
Simon Green (pictured), partner and head of real estate and construction for the Middle East, who will become the head of the Qatar office, says: 'I am delighted that we have opened an office in Qatar to serve our ever expanding client base in this important GCC market. We will continue to be recognised as a firm that understands its clients and adopts a proactive, flexible and commercial approach to meet their objectives.
“The focus for the office will be real estate development and construction work as well as our other areas of expertise such as corporate, communications and technology, litigation and dispute resolution, sports and one of our key differentiators from our competitors, private client services."
