This country is experiencing strong growth at the moment and the opportunities here for our global client base are immense."
Nasser Ali Khasawneh, said, "Chris has done an amazing job of growing the firm's presence in the region. This year, our financial results showed a 100% growth rate for the firm in the Middle East and Eversheds commitment and investment in the region continues beyond the merger of 2011. I am very excited about the future of Eversheds in the Middle East and looking forward to collaborating with our people and partners to achieve even greater success in the future."
