Holland & Knight opened a new office on Tuesday in Abu Dhabi. Donald Moore, a partner in the firm's Miami office, will become the executive partner at the new location. Joining him will be partner Wayne Gray and associates Harry Hsing, Farhad Alavi, and Ryan Bathie.
According to a statement by the firm, the office, which will focus on cross-border dispute resolution, will let Holland & Knight better serve its clients in the Middle East, parts of Africa, Central Asia, India, and Pakistan. “Holland & Knight lawyers have been traveling to this important part of the world for many years for clients and opening an office in Abu Dhabi is a natural extension of our steady increase in client representations there,” Moore said in the statement.
