Jonathan Brufal, who joined Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co. from Norton Rose Fulbright in 2012, is returning to the UAE as an energy and infrastructure partner to focus on the needs of clients in the GCC and Africa. He had previously led Norton Rose Fulbright’s infrastructure practice in Abu Dhabi.
Brufal specializes in the structuring of transactions, tendering procedures and contract drafting on international energy, water and infrastructure projects. The press release announcing the move quotes Brufal as saying, “Having previously spent four years in the UAE, I’m excited to reconnect with my Middle East network. Dubai is a key business hub for Africa, where much of my work is based.”
Senior Associate Tom Gray has also moved to Dubai to support Brufal and members of Wragge’s team.
