Savills buys Cluttons Middle East business

Savills has bought Cluttons’ Middle Eastern consultancy arm based in Dubai.

Cluttons Middle East, which will be rebranded as Savills during the year, employs 190 staff in seven locations in the region.

The deal, which completed at the end of May, will give Savills its first footprint in the area. The entire team and leadership will transfer to Savills’ global platform with immediate effect.

The business is one of the most established agencies in the Middle East, and has provided agency, management and consultancy in the commercial and residential sectors for more than 40 years.
