Dentons Establishes Stronger Saudi Foothold with Iconic Jeddah Office Space
Dentons is expanding its presence in Saudi Arabia by relocating to a new and iconic office space in Jeddah. With a strong foothold in both Jeddah and Riyadh, Dentons is one of the few international law firms to have received a foreign law firm license from Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Justice.
Dentons' new office in Jeddah is strategically located in the Headquarters Business Park, a landmark in the city. The office is positioned across from the recently developed Jeddah Waterfront. This move is expected to boost Dentons' growing team in Saudi Arabia and make its global practice and industry expertise more accessible to clients in the region. The firm's recent relocation of its Riyadh office to the prestigious King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) further demonstrates its strong commitment to Saudi Arabia.
Dentons' long-standing presence in Saudi Arabia, combined with its extensive global network, allows the firm to provide clients with a wide range of services across the country. Nick Simpson, Managing Partner of Dentons in Saudi Arabia, emphasised the importance of Jeddah as a key growth area for the firm in the region. He expressed his eagerness to welcome both new and existing clients to the firm's new office space.
Paul Jarvis, Chief Executive for the UK, Ireland, and Middle East (UKIME) at Dentons, expressed his enthusiasm about the firm's achievement in securing a cutting-edge office space within Jeddah's dynamic business hub. Jarvis underscored Dentons' unwavering commitment to cultivating progressive work settings that cater to the needs of both its staff and clients.
Dentons has the most extensive network of international law firms in the Middle East, counting more than 120 proficient lawyers stationed in nine strategic offices spanning Jeddah, Riyadh, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Amman, Beirut, Cairo, Doha, and Muscat. This network plays a vital role in facilitating business between the Middle East and other parts of the world. The firm's work on high-value, complex projects is aligned with Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Programme.
As Dentons progressively extends its presence in Saudi Arabia, the transition to the novel office space in Jeddah stands as a clear affirmation of the firm's resolute dedication to providing unparalleled legal services to clients not only within the Kingdom but also on a global scale.
