Clyde & Co has appointed Peter Greatrex as a partner in its Real Estate & Hospitality practice. Based in Dubai, Greatrex will be responsible for further developing the firm’s wider Middle East offering, with a particular focus on Saudi Arabia and Oman.

Greatrex is a real estate expert with over 10 years’ experience in the Middle East. He has spent over 12 years with Trowers & Hamlins, progressing to the role of partner. Peter relocated to Bahrain in 2008 and has been in Dubai since 2017 to lead the UAE and Oman real estate offering.

Greatrex has extensive experience in all areas of real estate transactions, advising master developer clients on all aspects of their development from conception to completion in multiple jurisdictions of the Middle East.

He is also an expert in the delivery of affordable housing, having worked on significant projects for the Governments of Abu Dhabi, Oman and Kuwait. Greatrex is a ranked lawyer in Chambers legal directory.

Alexis Waller, partner and head of real estate & hospitality for the Middle East at Clyde & Co, commented, “The Middle East region continues to offer large potential for growth, with governments pursuing plans for economic diversification and strategic investment. Our regional footprint, including a fully integrated Clyde & Co office in Riyadh, together with our recent expansion into Oman, gives us an ideal platform to further expand our specialist capability and offering. Peter’s strong regional property experience and his reputation in the field of PPP and affordable housing projects will be a key addition to drive the growth of our practice across the region.”

Commenting on the move to Clyde & Co, Peter Greatrex said, “I am looking forward to bringing my experience to a firm with such a recognised market-leading real estate practice. Capitalising on Clyde & Co’s established network in the Middle East, my practice is well placed to complement and develop the firm’s current real estate and hospitality offering across our key regional markets.”
