International law firm Watson Farley & Williams (WFW) announced that aviation finance partner Oliver Tebbit joined the firm’s Dubai office. He was previously a partner at Clyde & Co.
Tebbit has more than 15 years of experience advising on asset finance transactions and is noted for his expertise in the fields of commercial aviation and business jets. He has been actively involved in high profile transactions in Dubai and the wider Middle East region since 2001.
Also joining WFW from Clyde & Co’s Dubai office to work alongside Tebbit is Dhruv Paul, a corporate lawyer with a particular focus on aviation and aviation finance transactions, has experience working on transactions in the Middle East and India.
Andrew Baird, WFW head of Dubai, said, “Oliver is a terrific addition to our Dubai team. His experience and expertise will significantly enhance our regional aviation offering and enable our continued successful growth in the Middle East.”
Rex Rosales, global head of the firm’s Transport Sector Group, said, “Oliver is a great boost to our worldwide aviation offering and I’m delighted to welcome him to WFW. The addition of Oliver, following closely on that of fellow aviation finance expert Samuel Kolehmainen in Singapore this October, clearly demonstrates WFW’s standing as one of the most dynamic and successful international law firms in the aviation sector worldwide.”
