Joining an eclectic group of U.S.-based international law firms, Atlanta’s Kilpatrick Stockton is opening a small office in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates.
“The two-lawyer office is starting with several U.S. clients that also are newcomers to the region, with the goal of also representing local participants in the frenzied Gulf construction boom,” recounts the Fulton County Daily Report.
As discussed in earlier ABAJournal.com posts, Atlanta-based King & Spaulding opened an office there earlier, as part of an 18-month expansion spree, and Los Angeles-based Latham & Watkins included a new Dubai office among three it recently opened in the Middle East.
New York-based Weil Gotshal has also announced a plan to open in Dubai.
