Patton Boggs LLP Opens Dubai Office, Strengthens Presence, Expands Service Offerings In MENA Region

With the arrival of Mr. Wilson, Mr. Hutton and Mr. Taunton, Patton Boggs enhances its ability to advise clients engaged in the construction and infrastructure industries in the region. Lauded in Legal 500 as "experienced, capable and practical," Mr. Wilson has represented a range of construction and engineering industry clients, from throughout MENA, in the resolution of a diverse range of construction disputes. He is regularly involved in DIAC, ICC and LCIA arbitrations as advocate, and occasionally accepts appointments to sit as arbitrator. In addition, Legal 500 notes Mr. Hutton's "attention to detail, in-depth knowledge of the applicable laws and interpretation of the law's application in the commercial environment of Dubai."

"We are all extremely pleased to welcome Tom Wilson, Scott Hutton, Angie Hegazi and Jonathan Taunton to Patton Boggs as the first members of our new Dubai team and the foundation of our practice there" said William L. Nash III, managing partner of the firm's Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. office and a member of the firm's International Business and MENA practice groups. "They are an excellent addition to the Patton Boggs team, and will 'round out' the scope of our MENA-based legal services."

"Patton Boggs is committed to continued growth in the MENA region," noted Edward J. Newberry, managing partner of Patton Boggs.  "Our move into Dubai fulfills another of our key strategic objectives for MENA, toward expanding and strengthening our capabilities to best meet the needs of public as well as private sector clients," Newberry added. Currently, Patton Boggs' MENA offices boast strength in construction and infrastructure, project finance, real estate, private capital and investment, and trade, among many others.

"From a practice standpoint, our focus is on service areas aligned with the political and economic development now changing the face of the MENA region," Newberry added. "Many of our highly specialized practices support goals of governments in the region: we advise the tourism and hospitality sectors, infrastructure, and also educational institutions that have been invited to establish a presence in the region," Newberry added.
