AMJ has appointed Erik Penz, a former partner in Norton Rose’s Toronto office, as Special Counsel in the firm’s litigation and arbitration department. His hire boosts the Muscat-based team to two senior partners, three special counsel, ten associates and four trainees, the largest in Oman.

Erik has extensive experience of handling complex, multi-jurisdictional disputes across a wide range of sectors, including energy, construction, transport and mining on behalf of multinational corporations, foreign governments/state-owned enterprises, and Canadian listed companies. These cases include multi-jurisdictional and multi-party proceedings, high-value commercial disputes, insolvency proceedings, fraud and asset-tracing, company/joint venture/partnership disputes, employment litigation and administrative law matters.

He is an experienced advocate who has appeared before the Court of Appeal for Ontario, the Divisional Court, the Superior Court of Justice, arbitration panels and administrative tribunals. In addition to his advocacy on behalf of clients, Erik has extensive experience advising on claims, liabilities, risk mitigation, and dispute-resolution strategy.

Mansoor Malik, AMJ’s managing partner and joint head of head of litigation, commented: “Erik brings a wealth of litigation and arbitration experience with him that will strengthen our capability to meet the commercial and dispute resolution needs of clients at a time when disputes are becoming ever more complex against a backdrop of challenging market conditions.”
