Accuracy promotes Dubai office leader Juan Sáez to partner

18 January 2023 2 min. read

Global financial advisory firm Accuracy has promoted the head of its Dubai office – the Spaniard Juan Sáez – to partner.

Juan Sáez has been with Accuracy for over a decade, initially joining the consulting firm in its Madrid office. Not much later, he transferred to the firm’s larger London hub, and just before the arrival of Covid-19 in 2020 Sáez relocated to the UAE with the remit of further growing the Dubai office.

Having setup shop in the region in 2017, Accuracy currently has 16 people of 8 different nationalities in Dubai, serving a client roster that includes government institutions and companies in the construction, infrastructure and energy sectors.

Worldwide, Accuracy’s service portfolio revolves around three offerings: transactions, disputes, and strategic transformation. In the Middle East, the firm is particularly active in disputes – the firm’s consultants and economists assess the causes of delays and cost overruns in large projects.

Flagship projects that saw financial interventions based on Accuracy’s work include the King Abdullah Financial District in Riyadh, the Museum of the Future in Dubai, oil complexes in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia or the airports in Qatar and Oman.

Sáez leads Accuracy’s Project Advisory and Disputes practices in the Middle East. Alongside advising clients, he is regularly appointed as an independent expert witness on delay – his work has seen him recognised as an expert and thought leader by Who’s Who Legal.

Juan Sáez holds a double engineering degree from École Centrale Paris and Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, as well as an applied economics degree from Université Paris Dauphine. He is trilingual in English, Spanish and French.

Outside of the Middle East, Accuracy this month also promoted François Dunoyer de Segonzac and Edmond Richards to partner in Europe, and Melissa Di Marco to partner in Canada.
