Reed Smith makes duo hire from Pinsents in Middle East
Reed Smith has hired partners Sachin Kerur and Michelle Nelson from Pinsent Masons in the Middle East.
Kerur, who served as Pinsents’ Middle East head, will take on the role of Dubai and Abu Dhabi head at Reed Smith. The duo will be reunited with arbitration partner Shourav Lahiri, who left Pinsents in 2013.
Prajakt Samant, energy and natural resources chair at Reed Smith, spared no enthusiasm in commenting that the firm is “over the moon” to have landed the hires, expecting great benefits to the Middle East practice.
