Last Updated: 1 November 2010

Taylor Wessing Middle East today announced the promotion of Hasan Rizvi to partner based in its Dubai office. This promotion, along with induction of additional lawyers, underlines Taylor Wessing’s sustained expansion of its regional practice building upon its long standing presence in the Middle East.

Hasan’s practice spreads across the financial services and corporate sectors with particular focus on private equity, capital markets and projects.  He has led on many of Taylor Wessing Middle East’s recent key transactions working with major clients such as the Dubai Department of Finance and The Carlyle Group.

Christopher Dixon, Taylor Wessing’s Middle East Managing Partner, comments:

"I would like to congratulate Hasan on his promotion. This is an important development for Taylor Wessing Middle East and underlines both the strength of our firm and, more particularly, our growing reputation in relation to the depth of our services in this region. Hasan is highly regarded by our clients as well as by his colleagues globally. His promotion comes at a time when our regional practice is increasingly focusing on the financial services and corporate sectors, and so his expertise perfectly fits our needs and will help us to take our capabilities to the next level."

Hasan joined Taylor Wessing in 2006 and has more than 8 years of experience advising on conventional and Islamically-compliant debt and equity transactions, fund structuring and formations, cross-border investments and project finance as well as M&A and commercial arrangements in a diverse range of industries in the Middle East and South Asia.

Hasan Rizvi comments:

"I am delighted to have the opportunity to play my part in Taylor Wessing’s expansion in the region, and, in doing so, to strengthen from Dubai the firm’s global expertise. Particularly, this is an exciting time to enhance our regional capability. Taylor Wessing not only devotes significant means to its practices and geographies, but also anticipates market developments to provide forward-thinking legal services. Our clients find this dynamic approach in tune with their business needs."
