Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has moved into new offices in Dubai in ICD Brookfield Place, located in the heart of the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
ICD Brookfield Place is the winner of three recent International Property Awards, including World's Best Architecture. It is also the tallest and largest ‘LEED Platinum’ building in the EMEA region - a type of building that implements measurable, positive steps toward protecting and improving human and environmental health. The premises includes over 140,000 sq ft of green space, providing 30 percent increased fresh air above local environmental requirements, and consumes 30 percent less energy than the industry standard.
The new Dubai office underscores Norton Rose Fulbright's workplace strategy on effective client service delivery, internal collaboration, learning and development and optimising social cohesion between its people and clients. Key to this is the creation of “destination offices” where the firm enables people to work at their best whilst offering an environment that fosters flexibility, choice and innovation.
Mohammed Paracha, Head of Middle East, Norton Rose Fulbright, commented:
“In our 20th year in the UAE, our move to ICD Brookfield Place marks another significant milestone for our growing firm. We have nearly doubled our partnership in the region in the last two years, to 21 partners, with over 100+ staff across Dubai and Riyadh. Our new offices reflect our focus on providing an innovative and sustainable work space that supports the evolving needs of our people and our clients.”
Norton Rose Fulbright’s award-winning Dubai team offers a full-service practice with extensive experience in the energy, infrastructure, financial institutions, transport, technology, real estate and hospitality sectors. The firm is committed to and supports continuous learning at all levels to drive its ambition for long-term success and growth.
