CC procurement chief appointed as UAE law firm's first-ever CEO
Middle East law firm Habib Al Mulla & Company has recruited a senior business manager from Clifford Chance (CC) as its new chief executive officer. The UAE firm has hired CC’s Italy general manager Rob Morris, who is also the magic circle firm’s global head of procurement. He will join Habib Al Mulla next week (19 September), relocating from CC’s Milan arm to the Middle East. The hire marks the first chief executive appointment for the 50-lawyer firm, which said the move had come as part of an effort to instate a more formal law firm structure after significant expansion and the addition of a number of new clients.
