I'm an associate in our Corporate Group, based in the UAE, where I work as a lead counsel in M&A transactions. I also specialise in provision of employment law solutions to our clients.

Having qualified as a lawyer in 2009, I've worked with clients in sectors including aviation, retail and consumer, energy, infrastructure, financial services, healthcare, telecommunications and technology. I advise on regional and cross-border M&As, joint ventures, spin-offs, restructurings, IPOs, business establishment, as well as regulatory matters. I also have experience in dealing with the day-to-day HR issues that companies face, including in relation to employment visas and permits and termination of employment in the UAE. I work closely with our preferred network coordinating advice on a multi-jurisdictional basis for companies with multinational operations in the Middle Eastern region.

Clients that I act for include governmental organisations, institutional investors and global and regional corporates based in the US, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. I have managed multiple high-profile transactions.

I write and speak widely on matters relating to private equity and the intricacies of doing business in India and the UAE.
