Norton Rose Fulbright to open in Monaco

Global Firm November 2, 2016

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright today announces it is to open an office in Monaco. The firm will provide legal services in the Principality as Norton Rose Fulbright Monaco S.A.M.

The new office will be located in Rue du Gabian, Monaco, and is scheduled to open for business early 2017. It will primarily service the firm’s shipping and finance clients, many of whom are based in or have close connections with Monaco. The office will be headed by Dimitri Sofianopoulos, partner and head of Norton Rose Fulbright Greece, who will divide his time between Greece and Monaco.

Martin Scott, managing partner of Norton Rose Fulbright Europe, Middle East and Asia, commented:

“Our shipping and finance practice is widely regarded as a global leader and, as much of its work is derived from businesses located in the Principality, it makes sense for us to establish a base there from which to provide an enhanced service to our clients.”

Norton Rose Fulbright’s shipping and finance practice advises on the full range of shipping and offshore matters, from complex tax lease structures to anti-competition actions and ship building disputes. The team routinely advises on shipping finance, mergers and acquisitions, competition and regulation, infrastructure, energy and shipping litigation.

The new office in Monaco follows Norton Rose Fulbright’s recent expansion in the US (San Francisco) and Canada (Vancouver).
