Doug has led teams on a number of pioneering and award-winning transactions, including: advising Saudi Arabian government ministries on projects in a range of sectors; representing a major Saudi Arabian oilfield services company on M&A, joint venture, corporate governance and other matters; and supporting Saudi Arabia's National Industrial Clusters Development Program in its drive to diversify the Saudi economy.

Doug is one of White & Case's most-traveled partners, with insights for clients derived from his experience in White & Case's New York, Istanbul, Jeddah, London, Moscow, Singapore and Abu Dhabi offices and associated Riyadh office.
