Stephenson Harwood recruits Nick Sharratt as partner


Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP has strengthened its dispute resolution practice with the appointment of Nick Sharratt as a partner in its Dubai office.

Sharratt’s practice focusses primarily on international arbitration, on which he advises clients across jurisdictions in the Middle East, Europe and Africa. He also has extensive experience advising on a wide range of cross-border litigation and corporate investigations work in a variety of sectors. He joins the firm from Winston & Strawn.

“Since the development of the DIFC and the evolution of arbitration more broadly in Dubai, it is now recognised as a regional hub for dispute resolution,” said Rovine Chandrasekera, Dubai office managing partner, Stephenson Harwood. “As a nimble business, we are well-positioned to adapt to changing markets and client demands; the recruitment of Nick is an example of this. By harnessing his notable experience advising on dispute resolution in the region, we will continue to be well-placed to meet the evolving needs of our clients.”

Sharratt is recognised as a ‘Next Generation Lawyer’ by Legal 500 EMEA, and was commended as a ‘Counsel of the Year 2018’ for the Middle East and Asia by the ACC In-House Congress.

Having advised clients in the Middle East for many years, Stephenson Harwood launched its Dubai office in 2012. The Dubai team acts for a wide range of listed and private companies, institutions and individuals, and provides advice in the areas of marine and international trade, corporate and commercial, asset finance, projects, infrastructure, construction, commercial disputes, sanctions and employment.
