New construction legal services firm in Abu Dhabi

ABU DHABI, June 4, 2020

Mat Heywood, a seasoned construction litigator and arbitrator specialising in construction and infrastructure sector, has announced plans to launch its new legal services firm Mantle Law in the region with the headquarters based in Abu Dhabi.
Formerly a partner at Clyde & Co, Heywood has created a brand new enterprise that seeks to deliver a top-quality, conflict-free service with the ability to offer innovative delivery and pricing as standard in the region.
The Middle Eastern construction disputes market is one of the largest in the world, with over $2.5 trillion worth of construction projects planned for completion by 2030. It is also highly competitive, and many global law firms have spent decades building a significant presence. 
The practice focuses on dispute resolution – primarily arbitration, but with extensive experience in litigation, expert determination, adjudication and ADR – for the construction and infrastructure sectors.
Heywood’s experience covers an impressive array of landmark projects, from airports, ports and power generation to pipelines, roads, hospitals and commercial premises.
"In a market crowded with faceless institutions, it is our mission to create a truly distinctive and remarkable business, aligned to the times we live in and ready for a future we all face together; one that is proudly moving away from many of the outdated operational and cultural binds of traditional law," remarked Heywood.
The firm will concentrate on offering core legal services to the leading contractors, employers and construction/engineering professionals in the market, with a singular focus on arbitration and disputes he stated. 
"Most of all, we want to build a business that can deliver the most fleet-of-foot, optimised and effective legal support to our clients, who are increasingly under pressure to deliver more with less," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
