Shell is set to open an offshore legal centre.
The oil major has tasked a project team to scope out possible locations, estimate headcount numbers and report back by August.
The centre would service its global operations. Shell’s legal director Donny Ching is said to be heading the project, which will be a mix of non-qualified and qualified lawyers. The centre will manage legal and admin work.
Shell currently has offshore business centres in locations including Krakow, Glasgow, South Africa, Manila, Bangalore and Malaysia. It currently has a due diligence team in Glasgow and a patent search team in Bangalore.
