We are proud to have been advising clients in Saudi Arabia for over a decade and we are delighted to formalize our presence in the country. We have strong momentum in the region, and I look forward to working with Tariq and colleagues across the Gulf to build our business in the Kingdom further.”

Our local team, supported by a network of global experts, will continue to advise Saudi clients on the most complex corporate issues both inside and outside the Kingdom, and will play a key role in the development of Saudi talent in strategic communications.”
