Support Legal US opens in New York

Support Legal is delighted to announce the opening of Support Legal US in New York.

The New York office will be led by Peter Finan, recently relocating from Support Legal in the MENA region. Peter brings 15 years of international experience in the commercial and projects arena. He has contributed significantly to Support Legal’s award-winning transformation of legal services.

“I’m extremely excited with the opening of Support Legal US”, said Peter. “From its inception, Support Legal has broken-down barriers to new law.  With its unique combination of top tier lawyers and innovative technology, we are witnessing an inevitable expansion of its influence in the legal market. At Support Legal, we recognise that change in legal service delivery is here, driven by the evolving needs of our clients.”

Peter is a qualified New York attorney. Before joining Support Legal, he worked in the UAE, Australia and Morocco offices of a global law firm. He’s advised on the development of projects in many countries, notably in the power, energy, and natural resources sectors.

Dubbed a ‘Mining Wildcard’ in 2016 by Africa Mining Intelligence magazine for his mining sector expertise, Peter has advised clients on some of the world’s most strategically important mining projects including Simandou in Guinea and Oyu Tolgoi in Mongolia.

“We are thrilled with the opening of Support Legal US and see this as the next step forward in implementing our vision to be the pre-eminent catalyst for new law in a global context”, said Kiran Scarr, Chief Operating Officer at Support Legal. “Support Legal is a top firm for ambitious, initiative driven people, and I can think of no better time for Peter and his team to bring our model to the US market”.

Overseeing Support Legal’s US operations, Peter will continue to service international clients while guiding the new office in delivering transformational legal services in the US.
