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.”
