Clyde & Co partners with Saudi law firm
Riyadh, April 8, 2009
International law firm Clyde & Co has entered into an affiliation with the Law Office of Abdulaziz A Al-Bosaily in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Abdulaziz Al-Bosaily is an experienced Islamic finance specialist who has worked on some of the largest deals in Saudi Arabia.
He was formerly general counsel of the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (Sagia), before becoming a senior member of the Projects Team at Clifford Chance's affiliate Saudi Arabian law firm, and subsequently co-head of DLA Piper’s Saudi Practice Group.
In May last year, he established an independent Saudi law office in Riyadh, prior to affiliating with Clyde & Co in early 2009.
Clyde & Co is one of the major international law firms in the GCC with over 160 specialist lawyers and paralegals operating as a single unit from offices in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha.
“Abdulaziz and Clyde & Co have entered into this affiliation after extensive discussion. There is a very strong alignment of values, approach and agreement over development plans. We are already seeing the benefits of this relationship for our client-base,” said Jonathan Silver, head of Clyde & Co’s Middle Eastern practice.
“Clyde & Co’s long history and clearly demonstrated commitment to the region epitomises our strong strategic alignment and adds further impetus to our arrangement. There are a vast number of Saudi clients for whom this sort of background and commitment, and the expertise that goes with it, is very important,” added Abdulaziz.-TradeArabia News Service
