Dentons bolsters infra practice in London

Former Clyde & Co partner David Moore joins the law firm’s energy, transport and infrastructure practice in the UK.

International law firm Dentons has added a senior member to its transportation and infrastructure team with the hire of David Moore, a former partner at Clyde & Co.

Moore joins as partner in the firm’s London office.

Moore’s experience includes advising both public and private sector clients in the rail, roads and ports sectors with a particular focus on the UK, Middle East and Africa markets, Dentons said in a statement.

“Investment in transport and infrastructure is set to grow significantly in the UK, so this is the right time for us to enhance yet further our practice, which already occupies a very well-established position in the market,” said Jeremy Cohen, Dentons’ chief executive for the UK, Middle East and Africa region.

Originally headquartered in London and with a history dating back to 1785, Dentons now employs more than 7,300 lawyers in more than 55 countries.

Last week, the firm announced the launch of its presence in Latin America by merging with two established law firms – Cardenas & Cardenas in Colombia and López Velarde in Mexico – with which Dentons has been working.

The combined firms will be known as Dentons Cardenas & Cardenas and Dentons López Velarde, Dentons said, in a bid to capitalise on “the strength of both […] the names in their respective markets”.
