Chadi Salloum joins Morgan Lewis
Morgan Lewis has appointed corporate, projects, and infrastructure lawyer Chadi Salloum as a partner resident in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. He arrives from Akin Gump, where he co-managed the Abu Dhabi office.
Salloum represents primarily energy, power, and infrastructure clients with interests in the United Arab Emirates and throughout the Middle East, Africa, and Central Asia. He also represents sovereign entities, multinational companies, regional utilities, and financial institutions in a broad range of transactions, including corporate commercial, mergers and acquisitions, restructurings, renewable energy and other projects, privatizations, tender offers, rights offerings, and private placements of equity, equity-linked, and debt securities. He also advises clients on policy, regulatory, and governance matters and reporting obligations.
Salloum, who is recommended by Chambers Global and The Legal 500 EMEA, previously practiced with leading law firms in New York and Italy after clerking with the Chief Justice of the Canadian Federal Court of Appeals in Ottawa. Educated in the United States and Canada, he is fluent in English and Arabic, and is a French and Italian speaker.
“While generally focused on advising clients in the UAE and Gulf region, we also are excited about the synergies Chadi will create with Jennifer, Ayesha, and our other lawyers in the Middle East, Europe, and Asia to serve clients doing business in Africa and other important emerging markets,” said firm chair Jami McKeon. “Our clients will benefit from his comprehensive international experience and vision, coupled with his regional affinity and commitment.”
