Dubai based G Capital shortlisted for CCME awards 2012
G Capital sets groundbreaking legal precedent relating to jurisdiction in the DIFC
Dubai, 04 April 2012: G Capital (formerly Injazat Capital), a Dubai based private equity investor, advisor and fund manager, and a subsidiary of the Bahraini investment bank, Gulf Finance House (GFH), has its Chief Operating Officer, David Haigh, shortlisted to receive the Corporate Counsel Middle East (CCME) 2012 'General Counsel of the Year' Award. This shortlist nomination is based on G Capital 's successful bid for the acquisition of a bank in Turkey for US$ 75 million, as well as the favourable, multi-million dollar arbitration of a 4-year long legal case for one of the firm's investment funds.
The 2012 Corporate Counsel Middle East Awards will be hosted by "Legal Week" - the legal sector's most respected publication, and the Corporate Counsel Middle East Group, the Middle East's first group dedicated to excellence for in-house legal counsel professionals. The CCME Awards celebrate legal excellence in the Middle East, while the 'General Counsel of the Year' Award specifically recognises in-house legal counsel or legal departments for their noteworthy contributions or achievements throughout the year.
Commenting on his nomination, Mr. David Haigh, COO of G Capital said, "I am honoured to have been shortlisted for this most prestigious legal award. The work that I have done with G Capital has been challenging and it is especially gratifying to be recognised by my peers - the region's network of extremely qualified legal professionals. The fact that we managed to recently set legal precedent in the DFIC for some of the case work that we did last year makes the nomination for this award that much sweeter."
Commenting on the shortlisted nomination of Mr. Haigh, Mr. Hisham Alrayes, Senior Executive Officer of G Capital said, "This nomination highlights the strength of the team at G Capital , and shows that the strategy in place has been on point for the Bank. G Capital continues to be a prominent player in the Islamic Banking sector, and with winning a bid to acquire a Turkish bank recently, G Capital is now focusing on launching of a number of new funds. Based on the team structure, their experience and expertise, we have no doubt that these funds, once launched, will also prove to be an outstanding success."
G Capital , formerly known as Injazat Capital, is based at Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and is a DFSA regulated entity. It is one of the Middle East's foremost private equity investors, advisors and fund managers, providing capital and strategic support for growth companies. G Capital enjoys a ten year track record of top-performing investments and fund management, and was one of the first to be licensed by the Dubai Financial Services Authority.
