International law firm CMS has announced the appointment of Greg Sibbald as a legal director in the firm’s infrastructure, construction and energy (ICE) disputes practice in Dubai.
This is the sixth hire for the global ICE disputes group in the past 18 months and follows the appointment of Courtney Rotheray in September.
Sibbald has significant experience acting on contentious construction matters, representing international contractors, engineering consultants and government entities across the Middle East.
He returns to CMS after a three-year spell at Clyde & Co Dubai, having previously worked in the Construction team at CMS Scotland, where he advised clients on a wide variety of construction claims in the Sheriff Court, the Court of Session, arbitration and adjudication proceedings.
Patrick McPherson, construction disputes partner at CMS Dubai, said: “We are delighted to welcome Greg back to the firm.
“Greg is an outstanding construction lawyer and boasts considerable experience working on large scale commercial disputes across the Middle East.
“His experience will be of real value to our clients as we look to extend our capability across the region.”
Sibbald added: “I am delighted to be returning to CMS and working with colleagues old and new to build on the firm’s growth across the Middle East.”
