Curtis is pleased to announce that Paul Bugingo has joined Curtis as a partner in Dubai. Qualified to practice as a solicitor in England & Wales, Mr. Bugingo brings with him a wealth of experience in the energy and infrastructure sector and a particular focus on Africa.

In the span of his career, he is also credited with spearheading the Africa practice at Dentons.
“We are very pleased to have Paul join us. His broad experience in advising on Africa-related projects and his overall projects background will be a tremendous asset. He adds a new dimension to our Dubai-based offerings,” said Jeremy Miocevic, the Managing Partner of Curtis Dubai.
Curtis Chairman George Kahale III said, “Paul’s knowledge and experience in the Middle East and Africa will be a strong boost to our practice in those regions. We are confident he will play an important role in the continued development of that practice.”
Chambers Global 2020 commends Mr. Bugingo’s expertise in Africa, noting that he has a “strong ability to engage with a wide variety of stakeholders and is good at finding common ground and gaining their trust.”

This platform is a perfect match for my background and practice areas and I hope to contribute and celebrate many successes here.”
