April 08, 2014 // Franchising.com // Dentons announces that Dominic Pellew, formerly a partner with Baker Botts, joins the firm as a partner in the International Arbitration Group, sharing his time between the London and Moscow offices. Dominic is dual-qualified as a solicitor in England and as an avocat in France. A fluent Russian speaker, he is recognized as one of the counsel and arbitrators of choice in "East/West" international arbitrations, particularly those having a Russian or CIS component.
Of his arrival, Dominic said, "Dentons is the perfect fit for me. I have known the arbitration team for years. The Russian and CIS network is second to none, and their market-leading reputation for energy work makes Dentons the ideal platform for someone with my profile."
Jean-Christophe Honlet, co-head of Dentons' International Arbitration group in Europe, said, "We have known Dominic for a long time. He is a truly experienced and respected attorney in international arbitrations having a Russian or CIS angle. He brings together arbitration knowledge and language skills that few can match on that segment of the market. In light of Dentons' depth in Russia and the CIS, it was only a matter of time before our paths would come together. We are delighted that he joins our very experienced team composed of partners Liz Tout and Michelle Bradfield in London and Mikhail Ivanov in St Petersburg.
Dentons is a global firm driven to provide a competitive edge in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. It was formed in March 2013 by the combination of international law firm Salans LLP, Canadian law firm Fraser Milner Casgrain LLP (FMC) and international law firm SNR Denton. Dentons is built on the solid foundations of these three highly valued law firms. Each built an outstanding reputation and valued clientele by responding to the local, regional and national needs of a broad spectrum of clients of all sizes—individuals; entrepreneurs; small businesses and startups; local, regional and national governments and government agencies; and mid-sized and larger private and public corporations, including international and global entities.
Dentons' clients now benefit from approximately 2,600 lawyers and professionals in more than 75 locations spanning 50-plus countries across Africa, Asia Pacific, Canada, Central Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Russia and the CIS, the UK and the US who are committed to challenge the status quo and offer creative, dynamic business and legal solutions.
