Denton Wilde Sapte's (DWS) Middle East push has gained momentum, with firmwide chairman James Dallas set to transfer to Dubai in the new year.
As head of the firm's energy and infrastructure practice in the region, Dallas, who is currently based in London, will unite the practice group across all of DWS's Middle East operations.
Last month (17 September) The Lawyer reported on the launch of the firm's Qatar office with the hire of Patton Boggs partner Leigh Hall and counsel Safwan Moubaydeen. DWS now has seven offices across the Middle East.
Dallas said: "There are a lot of large energy and projects clients in the Middle East.
"It makes sense to connect all the offices we have in the region, especially in light of the recent launches in Qatar and Saudi Arabia."
Abu Dhabi office managing partner Andy Ward will work closely with Dallas to bolster the firm's energy capabilities in the region.
