Dentons triumphs at the Corporate Counsel Middle East Awards

I am proud to announce that Dentons was honored for the second year in a row with Corporate Counsel Middle East’s 2016 CSR Team of the Year Award for our work with Syrian refugees. In partnership with the Norwegian Refugee Council, the International Refugee Assistance Project of the Urban Justice Center and the New York Says Thank You Foundation, Dentons continues to make a real difference in the lives of Syrian refugees.

Our work has also been shortlisted for two Chambers 2016 Pro Bono Awards and was nominated for the 2016 American Lawyer CSR Awards.

Dentons Middle East Managing Partner, Michael Kerr said, “Our team is uniquely placed to provide assistance to disadvantaged communities in this region and we are honored to see their tireless commitment recognized once again.”

I am proud of the dozens of colleagues at Dentons who are volunteering to make a difference in the lives of Syrian refugees. Partners, associates and support staff across the Dentons Middle East network in Abu Dhabi, Amman, Beirut, Cairo, Doha, Dubai, Istanbul, Muscat and Riyadh offices volunteer to work with our partner organisations to bring hope to Syrian refugees and opportunities to thrive.

I am also grateful to Dentons’ management for their enthusiastic support of Syrian refugees, putting in the necessary resources to make a material difference in the lives of refugees.
