SNR Denton’s Hall quits as Middle East managing partner

SNR Denton’s Middle East managing partner has quit the firm for personal reasons shortly after the firm appointed him to the leadership role as part of a strategy overhaul.

Leigh Hall joined legacy firm Denton Wilde Sapt from Patton Boggs in 2007 (17 September 2007) when he was brought in to lead the firm’s Qatar office.

Hall was on SNR Denton’s senior management board and was named Middle East managing partner following a shake-up in October 2011 (24 October 2011).

A spokesperson for SNR Denton said: “Leigh Hall has resigned from the firm for personal reasons and is taking some time out. We will provide details of new management structure shortly.”

Hall advised corporates, institutions, lenders and developers on international development and project finance, Islamic finance, corporate finance and capital markets. He led the team advising on Qatar’s successful bid to host the 2022 Fifa World Cup (6 December 2010).
