Norton Rose Fulbright to open Monaco office

Law firm Norton Rose Fulbright is to open an office in Monaco, located in Rue du Gabian, early in 2017. The new office will service primarily the firm’s shipping and finance clients, and will be headed by Dimitri Sofianopoulos, partner and head of Norton Rose Fulbright Greece, who will divide his time between Greece and Monaco.

Harry Theochari, global head of transport, said: “Shipping is at the heart of this firm and we are recognised as a global market leader. Despite the shipping downturn, we have continued to invest in our shipping and wider transport practice. We look forward to extending our global footprint further with the opening of our office in Monaco, which together with our expansion into Vancouver and the addition of a market leading shipping team on Canada’s West Coast, will enable us to provide an even more comprehensive service to our clients.”
