Norton Rose Group strengthens dispute resolution practice in Bahrain

International legal practice Norton Rose (Middle East) LLP today announced that Gulfam Hussain will join the dispute resolution practice in Bahrain as a senior associate in September 2010. Gulfam joins Norton Rose (Middle East) LLP from Kuwait Finance House in Bahrain, the world’s largest Islamic Bank, where he was Senior Legal Counsel. He specialises in banking and finance disputes and has a broad range of dispute resolution experience in Bahrain and across the GCC. Gulfam is qualified as an English solicitor.
Gulfam’s appointment further strengthens Norton Rose Group’s dispute resolution practice in the Middle East and particularly the team in Bahrain following the promotion in May 2010 of Adam Vause to Of Counsel. Gulfam’s expertise in Islamic finance will also support the Norton Rose Group’s market-leading Islamic Finance practice which has recently expanded in the Middle East with the appointment of Mohammed Paracha to the partnership.
Patrick Bourke, head of dispute resolution for the Middle East commented: “We are delighted to have Gulfam join our Bahrain office. His in-house experience has been wide ranging across debt and equity finance and corporate and consumer banking and this insight will be an asset to our Middle East dispute resolution team. With his knowledge of Islamic finance and the Bahrain market Gulfam will add further depth to a very experienced team in our Bahrain office.”
Antony Dutton, group head of dispute resolution at Norton Rose Group added: "The Middle East region is a major strategic growth area for the global dispute resolution group and Gulfam’s appointment will strengthen our specialist banking and finance expertise in the region.”
