- PRESS RELEASE
The international law firm of Chadbourne & Parke announced today it has moved its Dubai office to prime real estate in the Burj Khalifa District -- the thriving business and financial area crowned by the renowned Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building.
"Chadbourne's Dubai office is the key to our MENA presence," said Dubai office Managing Partner Daniel J. Greenwald.
"The new office space will provide us with the room we need to grow as we continue to develop our on-the-ground presence in this dynamic legal and financial center."
"The new Dubai office represents another step in our program of major upgrades to the working environments throughout Chadbourne's international network," said Chadbourne Managing Partner Andrew Giaccia.
"In addition to our move to a prime location in Dubai, we have recently built a striking new state of the art office in Istanbul, modernized our Washington DC office to provide collaborative work areas in a contemporary light-filled environment, and signed a 20-year lease for Chadbourne's new global headquarters in midtown New York which will be built out by one of the world's leading architectural firms. The successful completion of these and other such initiatives is consistent with Chadbourne's strategy of investment to better serve our clients worldwide."
Strategically located to serve clients' needs in the Gulf region and throughout the Middle East and North Africa, lawyers in the Dubai office work closely with their colleagues in our New York, Istanbul and London offices to counsel UAE-based and international clients on a broad range of corporate, finance and disputes work, including: mergers and acquisitions, new investments, project finance, international dispute resolution, funds formation, securities compliance and corporate governance.
Chadbourne's Dubai office has been involved in some of the most groundbreaking and complex transactions in the region, including the recent representation of the sponsors, led by ACWA Power International, on the approximately $2 billion debt financing of the Qurayyah independent power project in Saudi Arabia, the largest independent power project in the world. The firm is also representing the State of Kuwait on all legal aspects relating to the competitive procurement of the 1,500 MW and 100MIGD Az-Zour North Independent Water and Power Project, the first IWPP in Kuwait.
The Dubai office is consistently recognized by leading publications for the significant depth and skill that its lawyers bring to cross-border, project finance and dispute resolution matters. Most recently, Chadbourne was ranked by Chambers Global 2012 as a leading law firm in the practices of Projects and Energy in the Middle East, and in Dispute Resolution in the United Arab Emirates.
