DLA Piper Expands in Persian Gulf


DLA Piper is planning an expansion in the Persian Gulf region.

The law firm already has offices in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and will open another office in the capital, Abu Dhabi, the National Law Journal reports. It is also considering offices in Qatar and Mumbai, India.

Lee Miller, one of the chief executives of the firm, says the Middle East is attractive because of oil money and a big real estate industry. “If we get this right, we will have a global real estate practice,” he told the NLJ.

Other firms with a Persian Gulf presence include Baker & McKenzie and Chadbourne & Parke.
