In brief: Nabarros construction expert leaves

Akbar Ali, a leading international construction law expert, has left London-based Nabarro Nathanson to join Davies Arnold Cooper as a partner. Formerly an in-house lawyer with Trafalgar House, he has been involved in major civil engineering arbitrations, including attracting business from European civil engineering contractors in former common law jurisdictions, such as West Africa and the Caribbean. He was a senior construction partner at Nabarros for seven years.
