RIYADH, Saudi Arabia–LAWFUEL – Law News, Law Jobs Network –Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P.’s attorneys in the Middle East have been recognized and highly rated for their corporate work by Chambers Global, a world recognized guide to the legal profession.
The Chambers Global guide for 2007 describes Fulbright’s Middle East attorneys as an “experienced, responsive and high-quality” team on the ground that is part of a “leading global outfit, with particular strength in the energy sector.”
Nearly a dozen of Fulbright’s practice areas from Asia to the United Kingdom were held out by Chambers for exceptional work. Among the practice areas that caught the attention of the Chambers researchers were the firm’s international arbitration, intellectual property, energy and dispute resolution work. Eleven of the firm’s attorneys were individually recognized in Chambers Global, including Mark Bisch in the firm’s Dubai office.
The Chambers researchers said Bisch and others Fulbright attorneys in the Middle East practice offer “that extra personal touch.”
Fulbright’s International Practice Group is made up of more than 130 lawyers, who provide a range of services on international transactional, commercial, financial, investment and dispute resolution matters. Fulbright has six international offices, including one in Riyadh and another in Dubai, and ten offices in the United States.
A team of 30 full-time researchers at Chambers spent a year analyzing firms and conducting 6,500 interviews of attorneys and their clients in 170 countries to complete the guide.
“This ranking is representative of the opinions of our clients and we consider it among the highest of honors,” said John Lonsberg, who heads the firm’s Middle East practice. “The Middle East is central to worldwide commerce and it is a platform from which we proudly serve a world-class clientele.”
