DLA Piper has welcomed Capital Markets partner, George Barboutis to its Middle East partnership. Based in Dubai, Barboutis relocates from the firm’s London office where he has been a partner since 2011.

US-qualified, Barboutis heads the firm’s US securities practice for the Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region. He advises on a wide range of equity, equity-linked and debt securities offerings, including both SEC-registered and Rule 144A/Regulation S transactions, IPOs, and US, London, and other international listings, representing both issuers and underwriters. George’s experience covers a variety of sectors, including financial services,  technology, telecommunications, manufacturing and natural resources.

Commenting on the move, Barboutis said: “With its geographical proximity to key markets such as South Africa, India, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, Dubai presents a strong hub from which to drive cross-border capital market transactions. As a firm we’re seeing significant momentum and growth in the Middle East and I look forward to contributing to this whilst continuing to expand our US securities offering across the EMEA region.”
