Dubai-based DP World couldn’t have hired its first general counsel at a better time. After George Dalton took the post a year and a half ago, he first helped the company weather a political storm over its acquisition of several port facilities in the United States. Then Dalton played a key role in DP World’s recent auction of its American assets.

Dalton says he’s fortunate to be in the right place at the right time. “Dubai itself is in growth mode — real estate, hotels, airlines, the maritime industy, you name it, it’s an exciting place to be,” the GC explains. “And the intellectual stimulation on the business side at DP World has been great — a lot of work, but great fun.”
