Herbert Smith introduces new CEMEA disputes chief role
Herbert Smith has appointed Moscow litigation chief Dmitry Kurochkin as its new head of dispute resolution for Continental Europe, the Middle East and Africa (CEMEA). The appointment, effective from the start of this month, makes Kurochkin the first partner to hold the role. The firm previously appointed Paris disputes head Denis Chemla to lead the CEMEA practice in May this year; however, he resigned days later to join Allen & Overy (A&O). Kurochkin will continue as head of the Moscow disputes practice alongside the new position. He has been at Herbert Smith since 2002, when he joined from Clifford Chance, and was made up to partner in 2004.
