Pinsent Masons partner, Sachin Kerur, has been listed among the 50 most influential figures in the Middle East construction industry by the region’s leading construction magazine, Construction Week.

Mr Kerur, who heads up Pinsent Masons’ Dubai office and has advised on numerous airports, road and rail network projects as well as commercial and residential developments, was ranked 44th in the magazine’s ‘Power 100’, adding to an increasingly successful year for the international law firm. 

 His success comes after he and two other Pinsent Masons partners, Michelle Nelson and Bill Smith, were listed in this year’s Who’s Who Legal’s Global Construction Lawyers.

 He said: “Pinsent Masons has the largest, and we believe best, construction team of any law firm in the Middle East and these accolades recognise the difference that the team has made throughout the past year.”

 Globally, Pinsent Masons is recognised as the world’s largest construction and infrastructure law firm, proved by size, specialisms and project success.

 The past year has also seen the firm recognised as the Middle East Property and Construction Team of the Year at Legal Week Corporate Counsel Middle East Awards, as well as major awards in every other region in which the company operates.
