Carnell, who will head Wessing’s Dubai construction practice, specialises in dispute resolution and contract drafting, and has advised property developers, funders, contractors, specialist sub-contractors, and insurers.

Carnell’s appointment follows the hire of finance partner Habib Ullah, and means Taylor Wessing now has seven partners at its Dubai office.
