Jones Day partner Sheila Shadmand named among MENA Super 50 by Asian Legal Business

Jones Day's Sheila Shadmand, a partner in the Firm's Global Disputes Practice and Partner-in-Charge of Jones Day's Middle East & Africa Region, has been named by Asian Legal Business (ALB) among its MENA Super 50, the 50 standout lawyers in the Middle East and North Africa region who have excelled in client service.

Ms. Shadmand is a U.S.-qualified lawyer who has been resident in Dubai for nearly 15 years. Over her 25 years of practice, she has represented several of the Firm's largest clients in complex commercial litigation and arbitration, as well as in investigative matters before the DOJ and SEC. Ms. Shadmand has served as counsel or arbitrator in numerous high-value ICC, LCIA, DIFC-LCIA, and DIAC arbitrations and as an advocate with full rights of audience in the DIFC Courts. She also counsels multinational companies on compliance with FCPA, anti-money laundering, anti-boycott, and sanctions laws, and defends companies facing enforcement by U.S. agencies, including the DOJ, SEC, and OFAC. She has led and defended investigations into such matters in more than 35 countries throughout the Middle East, Africa, and Southeast Asia (MEASA) region.

The lawyers in the MENA Super 50 were selected based on client recommendations sent directly to ALB via an electronic survey. This is the second consecutive year ALB has published its MENA Super 50 List. More than 300 in-house counsel voted, from across the Middle East region and beyond.
