Dubai, May 5, 2011 - Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP continues to grow in Dubai with the addition of Malik R. Diab as a partner in the corporate and arbitration practice groups.
Mr. Diab, who speaks both Arabic and English, is the latest addition to the expanding Curtis office in Dubai. Last month, Gayle Hanlon joined Curtis as counsel and Camille Silla Paldi came to the firm as an associate there.
Mr. Diab has advised Fortune Global 500 and large U.S., European, and Asian clients on complex commercial and corporate matters, including the drafting of major commercial agreements as well as regulatory compliance, company formation and licensing, transactions, dispute resolution and employment-related issues. He has been the lead counsel in large scale corporate mediations. Mr. Diab has also advised Fortune 500 consumer financial services companies on the development and management of global and case-specific discovery and e-discovery protocol.
“We are very pleased to be adding Malik Diab's wide range of experience and skills to our fast-growing office in Dubai,” said Bruce Palmer, regional managing partner for Curtis. “He will be an important addition to our firm as Curtis continues to enhance its reputation in the Middle East as a leading international law firm.
Malik Diab comes to Curtis from a leading Saudi International law firm based in Jeddah & Riyadh. He was also managing partner of a litigation boutique law firm in Chicago, focusing on large-scale litigation and arbitration. He was previously a partner at Lovells.
“Curtis is an exciting opportunity for me,” said Mr. Diab. “Curtis offers a strong international platform that will enable us to take full advantage of my experience helping global clients fulfill a wide variety of needs for legal services.”
Mr. Diab is admitted to the State of Illinois, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, the U.S. Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit, and the U. S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.
He earned his B.A. from Northwestern University and his J.D. from the University of Illinois College of Law, where he was an Associate Editor of the Law Review.
