Norton Rose City trio set for Mideast switch

Norton Rose is set to relocate three of its London partners to the Middle East in a significant boost to the firm's finance practice in the region, reports
The firm’s global head of Islamic finance, Neil D Miller, is set to transfer to the Dubai office, while corporate finance partner Alan Bainbridge and asset finance partner Emma Giddings will both move to Abu Dhabi. All three are expected to make the switch by the end of next month, it said.
United Arab Emirates managing partner Campbell Steedman said: "Notwithstanding the downturn in the international markets, from which the Middle East has not been isolated, we continue to have a strong, established business in the region, and look forward to the arrival of Bainbridge, Giddings and Miller — all of whom have strong existing practices in the region."
