Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer's former London finance head, Bob Charlton, is being transferred to the Middle East in a significant boost to the Magic Circle firm's presence in the region. Charlton is set to take up a post in the firm's Dubai office. The move is evidence of a concerted push in the region by Freshfields, after the firm also transferred arbitration head Jan Paulsson and London corporate partner Bruce Embley to its Dubai office, which focuses primarily on banking, asset and project finance.
