Gibson Dunn adds seven-strong team members from Shearman & Sterling for the Abu Dhabi launch



Gibson Dunn & Crutcher has added a seven-strong team from Shearman & Sterling including a trio of partners to launch in Abu Dhabi. This move represents a major investment in the Middle East for the top 20 US-based firms that currently has another office in the region in Dubai, housing six lawyers. The new office will be led by corporate partner Renad Younes who has arrived from Shearman alongside the project development and finance partner Samuel Ogunlaja and pair of associates for the launch. The remainder of the team from Shearman, corporate partner Jade Chu, and two of their associates will be based in Dubai.


The arrival of the team will come in a few months after Marwan Elraby, the global co-head of corporate at Shearman left the firm to join Gibson Dunn in Dubai. The office led by global finance co-chair Michael Nicklin saw the promotion of private equity lawyer Hanna Chalhoub and international arbitration lawyer Nooree Moola to the partnership earlier this month. Gibson Dunn has also seen departures in the UAE which is recommended by The Legal 500 in the corporate and M&A, arbitration and international litigation, and investment fund formation and management categories.

Shearman has north of 20 lawyers including nine partners in its offices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai and their associate firms in Saudi Arabia following the team’s departure for Gibson Dunn.
