Gowling WLG expands Dubai office with new Tech team acquisitions

02 March 2018

International Law firm Gowling WLG has strengthened its Dubai office with the appointment of a new Tech team in the United Arab Emirates.

Director Anthony Fielding and senior associate Alexandre Brazeau join Gowling WLG to strengthen the firm's international, sector-focused global Tech group presence in the Middle East.

Anthony and Alexandre bring significant international experience working in the Middle East, Singapore, Canada and Australia. Advising on broad range of technology, digital and telecoms matters globally, the pair have advised key players across a wide range of market sectors and services, including among others; media and digital communications; infrastructure; corporate and commercial bodies.

The international law firm's 300-strong global Tech team offers a diverse and full range of solutions to help clients achieve their commercial objectives: raising capital; M&A activities; regulatory matters; offensive, defensive and monetisation strategies for IP, and more.

UK LLP partner and Tech team Co-Chair Alexandra Brodie said: "Anthony and Alexandra are both first class additions to the Tech team and to the Dubai office, with strong capabilities in managing large and complex advisory and regulatory work in the sector, particularly in the Middle East. They are ideally positioned to drive the work of the Tech team in the region."

Head of the firm's Dubai office Tim Casben said: "I'm extremely pleased to welcome Anthony and Alexandre to the firm and to the Dubai office. Their experience in the Middle East will be valuable not only for our international clients coming into the region but those clients looking to expand their presence outside of the UAE. It's an exciting time for the Dubai office as we continue to realise the firm's strategy to grow the office into areas of strategic strength for the wider firm. Anthony and Alexandre significantly enhance the Dubai corporate team's focus on the Tech sector and complement our leading IP practice."
