International law firm Clyde & Co has announced that it is opening an office in Tripoli, the firm’s fifth in the Middle East and North Africa region. Clyde & Co will operate from Tripoli Tower and will be open from 1 August 2012.
Libyan lawyer Albudery Shariha will join Clyde & Co from the Libyan Investment Authority, where he was General Counsel, to head the Tripoli office. He will be joined by four associates on 1 August and, given the level of enquiries received, Clyde & Co will be actively recruiting both Libyan and international lawyers in the coming months. The Tripoli-based team will be supported by dedicated multilingual Libya desks in London, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
The firm has been present for nearly 25 years in the Middle East with offices in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Doha and via an associated office in Riyadh.
