Eversheds Sutherland strengthens its litigation presence in the Middle East

New Head of Litigation and Dispute Management appointed

Eversheds Sutherland has announced that Rebecca Copley will become Head of Litigation and Dispute Management for the Middle East from 1 January 2019.

In the role, she will manage Eversheds Sutherland’s client offering for Litigation and Dispute Management within the Middle East region. Prior to taking on the role, Rebecca was Head of Litigation for UAE, and led the Financial Services, Disputes and Investigations Group for the Middle East.

Rebecca’s new role comes during a period of sustained growth for the global practice’s disputes capability in the Middle East, and follows five recent hires including Paul Taylor as partner in Dubai. The Litigation and Dispute Management Group now has 30 dedicated lawyers across five countries in the region, reflecting the increasing demand from global and local clients for disputes and international arbitration capabilities in the UAE and the Middle East.

Based in the Dubai office, Rebecca specialises in corporate crime, regulatory and investigations work. She also supports global clients on complex litigation instructions, working in the DIFC, UAE and English courts. Rebecca will now lead the group as it continues to grow its presence and multi-jurisdictional capabilities in the region.
