Eversheds has boosted its Middle East presence with the hire of partners Dani Kabbani and Ben Moylan at its Doha office.
Kabbani, who joined the firm from Simmons & Simmons, advises companies and government bodies on mergers and acquisitions, private equity and joint ventures. He has experience advising on oil and gas and construction matters, having worked closely with Qatar Petroleum for seven years.
Previously at SNR Denton’s Doha office, finance specialist Moylan advised on issues including debt capital markets deals, asset finance, acquisition finance, real estate investment and development finance arrangements during his tenure there.
Further strengthening Eversheds’ offering in the region, financial services litigation partner Ben Bruton has also relocated from the firm’s London office to Dubai to head the financial dispute resolution team.
Eversheds has steadily been growing its numbers in the Middle East with the hires of energy specialist Tim Armsby and corporate partner Muhammad Arif Saeed earlier this year.
