Mantle Law launches in London
“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford”
It is with a mix of pride and excitement that I announce that Mantle Law UK has, today, officially opened its doors in London with Gurbinder Grewal leading a team of specialist energy, infrastructure and construction lawyers.
It has been exactly 18 months, to the day, that Mantle Law launched its first office in the United Arab Emirates and in that time, we have achieved something really quite unique in the Global Legal Market – we are a United Arabic Emirates law firm expanding into the UK and taking a legal and business model that has its roots in the Emirati legal system and exporting it to one of the most sophisticated legal markets in the World.
Mantle is not one to follow the crowd and so rather than a Western headquartered law firm expanding East, we are a Middle Eastern headquartered law firm expanding West.
We started out with the dream of building a new type of law firm and that is exactly what we have done. This new approach caught the imagination of clients and practitioners in the Middle East and, it transpired, London. One of our core principles is to be agile and react to what clients and the markets are telling us – it didn’t take us long therefore to determine that Mantle Law should be in London.
We are working with some amazing clients on their largest and most complex disputes. It is these clients that have given us the confidence to expand and take our Middle Eastern regional firm into the UK and European markets.
We have been recognised by peers and directories alike and as a result are attracting some simply amazing people, that brings me onto Gurbinder.
In Gurbinder, Mantle Law UK has one of the most impressive construction, energy and infrastructure dispute lawyers in the UK and, for anyone that has had the good fortune to meet him, one the finest people in this profession of ours.
I am so incredibly excited that our expansion has begun and I hope you will join me in welcoming Gurbinder and the London team to the Mantle Law family.
The positive energy and momentum we have is incredible and if you want to learn more about us and our firm then drop us a line.
Oh and Samuel Johnson was right about London and we are truly excited to becoming part of the ‘life’ of London.
