CMS's expansion in the Middle East
CMS is deciding to expand in the Middle East and has demonstrated this by opening a new office in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. Through this opening, CMS has six offices in the region, located in Oman, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Iraq.
The attorney appointed to lead this new office is David Moore, an infrastructure and project finance partner specialising in the transport sector. Moore will be supported by the collaboration of other colleagues of the firm located in the region: Mark Rocca and John O' Connor.
"We are delighted to be opening an office in Abu Dhabi. This has been an important objective of ours for many years, and will allow us to provide a better, more tailored service to our clients in the capital and across the UAE," said O'Connor.
But CMS is not the only firm expanding into the Middle East. Other firms such as Morgan Lewis & Bockius and Keystone Law are also increasing their presence in the region.
