Alastair recently relocated from Dentons' London office where he was based since joining the firm in 2011.

Alastair will initially lead Dentons' UAE Disputes practice and then the wider Middle East Disputes practice from May 1.

Dual qualified both as a barrister (since 1996) and as a solicitor (since 2007), he has been practising in the Middle East while based in the UK since 2007 and has a wealth of experience acting for international companies operating in the region.

Alastair has extensive experience of all forms of dispute resolution, including litigation in the UK's Technology and Construction Court, statutory/contractual adjudication, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) (including mediation and expert determination) and domestic and international arbitration.

Andrew Jones, partner and head of construction in the Middle East at Dentons, said: "We are pleased to welcome Alastair to our Middle East practice. His move strengthens our team and demonstrates Dentons' ongoing commitment to and investment in the region."

Paul Jarvis, Dentons' managing partner for the Middle East, commented, "Alastair is a great addition to our Middle East practice. His clients will benefit from his great wealth of international experience as we continue to see the rise of disputes where the resolution can take place in multiple jurisdictions."
