Squire Patton Boggs welcomes international arbitration lawyer to the Middle East practice

Squire Patton Boggs is continuing the expansion of its international dispute resolution practice with the appointment of Bryan Dayton, who joins the firm in Dubai as of counsel.

Dayton has 19 years of experience in international arbitration and litigation, with a career that includes roles at Freshfields, Shearman & Sterling, and Obeid & Partners.

He has represented clients in international commercial arbitrations and investor-state arbitrations under major arbitral institutions. He has substantial experience in the Middle East, advising on complex construction and commercial disputes in the region and globally, as well as acting for clients from a wide range of industries including chemicals, power plants, steel, oil and gas, and agriculture.

“Bryan is an experienced lawyer of renown, with capabilities and a track record that will add greater strength to our team and prove to be a real asset to our clients,” said Thomas Wilson, UAE managing partner and head of the firm’s construction and arbitration practices in the Middle East.

“The expansion of our Middle East team is of strategic importance both to the firm as a whole and to our practice,” said Stephen Anway, IDR global co-leader. “Bryan is an excellent addition to our market-leading team and we are delighted to welcome him to the firm.”

Dayton is one of a number of hires the firm has made in Dubai in recent months, following the recent addition of corporate and M&A partner Omar Momany and financial services partner Nima Fath.  At the end of last year, Squire Patton Boggs obtained its law license in Saudi Arabia and opened an office in Beirut.

 “I am excited to be part of such a talented and energetic team and to be part of the firm’s continued growth in such a dynamic market,” said Dayton.
