Payne Hicks Beach lawyer exits to launch Middle East firm

Payne Hicks Beach construction and energy head Julian Critchlow is set to leave the firm on 1 June to launch his own practice focused on the Middle East and East Africa.

The new firm is established in association with UAE firm Al Bawardi and will be called Al Bawardi Critchlow. The association enables Mr Critchlow to practise across the Middle East and boosts Al Bawardi’s international presence, with the new firm becoming its first associated office in the UK.

Mr Critchlow is taking five consultants from his team at Payne Hicks Beach to Al Bawardi Critchlow, which will be based on Fleet Street.
