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.
This addition comes close on the heels of lateral partner hires in New York, London and Milan, strengthening the firm’s international network of offices.
Prior to joining Curtis, Mr. Bugingo was a partner and co-chair of the Africa practice at Simmons & Simmons based in Dubai. He has spent over 20 years advising Governments, state-owned corporations and investors on large-scale energy and infrastructure projects across Africa, including in Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Somaliland, Djibouti, Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Botswana, Swaziland and Lesotho. 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.”
Mr. Bugingo commented, “I am honored and delighted to join Curtis, a firm well known for its representation of sovereigns and state-owned corporations, and its high-calibre, talented attorneys. This platform is a perfect match for my background and practice areas and I hope to contribute and celebrate many successes here.”
Mr. Bugingo has a Bachelor of Law (LLB) degree from University of Reading in the UK.
