Eversheds merges with ME law consortium
Dubai, May 25, 2011
International law firm Eversheds announced that it has merged with Middle Eastern law consortium KSLG, that will see the firm treble in size in the region.
KSLG is a consortium of Middle Eastern law firms Dhabaan & Partners, Khasawneh & Associates and Sanad Law Group. The consortium provides a full range of quality legal advice ranging from corporate/commercial and real estate, to government policy reform, employment and dispute management.
The merger will give Eversheds KSLG unrivalled geographic coverage in the Middle East with offices in Abu Dhabi, Amman, Baghdad, Doha, Dubai and Riyadh.
In a strategic move into the Middle East, the deal will see KSLG fully integrate into Eversheds, but retain the name Eversheds KSLG, pending completion of licensing arrangements.
'The vision behind KSLG was to provide clients with a regional practice that could cover work throughout the Middle East with quality, efficiency and a level of service excellence that was consistent in every office of the group,' said Nasser Ali Khasawneh, founding partner of KSLG and managing partner of Eversheds KSLG Dubai office.
Eversheds LLP and its world wide offices have over 4,500 people who provide services to the private and public sector business and finance community. Access to all these services is provided through 50 international offices in 30 jurisdictions.-TradeArabia News Service
