DUBAI, February 26, 2019

Galadari Advocates & Legal Consultants, one of the leading integrated law firms in the region, has appointed Matthew Donovan as a partner based in the firm’s headquarters in Dubai.

Donovan brings in 16 years of experience with a particular focus on international private equity and venture capital investments, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and corporate finance transactions.

He has also advised clients ranging from public companies to entrepreneurs and small businesses; on asset acquisitions and disposals, public offerings, private placements and reorganizations based multi-sector engagements including defence & security, oil & gas, healthcare, retail (sports, F&B), aerospace, automotive, engineering and manpower services.

Ziad Galadari, founder and chairman of the firm, commented: “We are thrilled to have Matthew on board, as his extensive experience in negotiating commercial and corporate agreements, and management of services, partnerships and consultancies; will assist in key areas for our clients further expanding our capabilities in the region. We believe Matthew’s appointment will serve to support Galadari’s growth as a leading law firm with a wealth of expertise across the full range of practice areas.”

The announcement follows Donovan’s most recent achievement; the successful acquisition of G4S Cash Services LLC on behalf of his client Transguard Group; which will serve to drive value for banking and financial sectors in the UAE. Donovan joined Galadari Advocates recently and has since then maximized the company’s resources, contributing immensely to the expansion of client portfolio and to the firm’s strategic plan addressing industry dynamics, the local market and individual businesses.

Donovan commented: “It’s an honour to be associated with the region’s prominent law firm that has a well-founded understanding of practices and procedures essential for doing successful business here in the UAE. As partner, I look forward to build on what the firm has achieved already; in order to further develop and integrate our capabilities across core practices." – TradeArabia News Service
