Conyers expands Dubai office

With a new addition to its Middle East office in Dubai, Conyers Dill & Pearman is anticipating its Cayman Islands capabilities will continue to flourish.

Corporate attorney Dennis Ryan has relocated to Dubai from the Cayman Islands office of Conyers where he advised on corporate, finance and investment funds matters.

A recent press release states his relocation is timely as demand for Cayman Islands advice continues to grow across the MENA region.

‘Dennis’ arrival in Dubai augments our existing Cayman Islands expertise and will bring added benefits to our local and regional clients,’ said Kerri Lefebvre, partner in Conyers’ Dubai office

‘Dennis is an excellent lawyer with a well established client base in the Middle East, and a wealth of significant experience in Cayman Islands law. His addition to our Dubai office reflects our commitment to providing the highest quality legal advice in a responsive, timely and thorough manner to clients in the Middle East. We are delighted to welcome Dennis to our team of experienced corporate attorneys.’

Mr. Ryan’s practice includes all aspects of corporate finance and the formation of investment entities, with specialist experience in investment funds, M&A, joint ventures, private equity and other corporate matters.

‘It is an exciting time to join the Dubai office, as Conyers continues to develop its Cayman Islands and broader corporate practice in the region, and enhance Dubai’s strength as a leading financial centre,’ said Mr. Mr. Ryan.

‘The Cayman Islands is a key market for Middle Eastern business, and I look forward to continuing to serve our global client base from Dubai.’

Conyers established its Dubai office in 2006 with a focus on investment funds, private equity, joint ventures, project financings, Islamic finance, and shari’ah compliant transactions and securitisations. As well as Cayman Islands law, the Dubai office also advises on British Virgin Islands, Bermuda and Mauritius law, servicing clients across the MENA region in conjunction with its global network, which spans 11 locations worldwide.
