SSQ grows Middle East team
This brings the number of dedicated legal search consultants for the region to three.
El Zein has practised as a lawyer in the region and was most recently a partner at Lebanese law firm Kouatly & Associates in Beirut. He also previously worked for several years for another international legal search consultancy in London and Dubai and has extensive experience advising law firms on expanding their practices.
Speaking about his new role El Zein said, “I am very excited to have joined SSQ. The business has gone from strength to strength over the last few years and I feel that it is the best place for me to bring and build upon my experience.”
Following El Zein's appointment, SSQ’s chief executive, Nick Shilton, said, “Now is a very interesting time for legal search in the Middle East. The market is very busy and there is considerable movement between law firms across the region. By adding to our capabilities in the Middle East through Hussein’s experience and knowledge we will be able to better serve our clients there, as well as those that might want to expand into the Middle East market in the future.”
