Dentons boosts international arbitration group
Dentons has boosted its international arbitration group with the hire of Baker Botts partner Dominic Pellew.
Pellew is dual-qualified in the UK and France and is a Russian speaker, and he will work in both the London and Moskow offices.
Dentons’ Russian offering includes offices in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakstan, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan, and focuses on advice in the oil and gas industries.
The news of Pellew’s hire comes just days after Dentons confirmed that it is in merger negotiations with Patton Boggs, despite the fact that Patton Boggs is already in merger talk with US firm Squire Sanders.
