      /uploads/sites/378/2016/06/dubai-night-cityscape-web_616x372.jpg" alt="" width="975" height="588" /></a> Ex-Gibson Dunn &amp; Crutcher partner Peter Gray is to co-lead a new firm following the merger of his fledgling practice, Kingsgrove Partners, with United Arab Emirates (UAE)��outfit Mohammed Al-Dahbashi Advocates. The newly launched firm, called Al Dahbashi Gray (ADG), will be headquartered in Dubai and co-led by Mohammed Al Dahbashi, the founder of the UAE firm, and Gray, who will also be based in Dubai. ADG���s focus will include anti-money laundering and compliance, construction, family law, government regulation, criminal law and employment. It consists of 15 lawyers, including three partners. The firm has launched a representative London office, which will work with partner firms and lawyers.��The City base is headed by new litigation partner Natalie Flooks, who��has experience in intellectual property, employment, sports and media law. According to her LinkedIn profile, Flooks has been acting as practice manager at Kingsgrove for the past year. Gray left US firm Gibson Dunn���s London office in April 2015. His departure came two months after the High Court ruled he had "deliberately misled" the court with incorrectly dated evidence��in a case involving the Republic of Djibouti and one of its wealthiest citizens, Abdourahman Boreh. Boreh had been convicted of terrorism for his involvement in a 2009 attack, in part because of the evidence Gray had submitted. His conviction was later overturned when the dating error emerged. Last year, Gray <a href="http://www.legalweek.com/sites/francesivens/2016/04/05/ex-gibson-dunn-djibouti-partner-sues-firm-for-unfair-dismissal/">launched a lawsuit against his former firm</a> for unfair dismissal. He is seeking costs totalling $456,793.79 (��321,200) relating to his legal expenses, outstanding pay and expenses. In addition, Gray is claiming unspecified sums for damages he suffered from Gibson Dunn���s ���negligence��� and interest. The case is ongoing. <
