International law firm Clyde & Co has reportedly closed its office in Libya.
According to Legal Week, the firm, which became the first international law firm to open in the country when it opened there in August 2012, made the decision in April amid mounting political instability.
Between eight and 10 staff had worked in the office at various times, with most now relocated to other offices, including former Trowers & Hamlins partner Adrian Creed, who is now working in Abu Dhabi.
Albudery Shariha, who was hired from the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) to head the office, left in April to set up his own firm.
