London’s Allen & Overy plans to strengthen its presence in the Gulf region by opening an office in September in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. Ibrahim Mubaydeen and Francois Duquette will join as partners from Abu Dhabi’s Simmons & Simmons, and Jas Giller will relocate from Allen & Overy’s Singapore office. Mubaydeen has been based in Abu Dhabi for 11 years and specializes in project finance and corporate work. Duquette, who has spent more than three years in Abu Dhabi, focuses on specialized corporate transactions. Allen & Overy was one of the first international law firms to establish a presence in the Middle East when it opened a Dubai office in 1979. In May, the firm announced it will open an associated office in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, next month. The firm has approximately 450 partners in 24 offices.
