London-based international Law firm Simmons & Simmons has raided competitor Dentons for its Africa specialist Paul Bugingo (pictured).
Bugingo joins Simmons as a partner, as the law firm looks to expand its Africa group and energy and infrastructure sector.
He comes from being former relationship chair of Dentons' Africa Steering Committee. He was a leading figure in the firm’s African projects, energy and infrastructure sector, where he worked with governments, utilities, regulators and private companies across Africa.
Bugingo becomes Simmons’ 14th partner this year and joins Fasken Martineau, whom the firm recruited earlier in the year, in the Africa group.
