Prior to joining LOD as a global content manager in early 2019, Mr Dodd served for nearly three years at LexisNexis UK. He was also a lawyer at Australian BigLaw firm Corrs Chambers Westgarth.


He brings, LOD said in a statement, over a decade of legal industry experience and an “in-depth” understanding of the LOD business and how alternative legal service providers can unlock remarkable value for law departments.

Leveraging his deep insights and market acumen, the provider went on, he is positioned to play a pivotal role in creating growth opportunities and enhancing client and lawyer engagement throughout the Middle East region.

Speaking about the appointment, LOD managing director for Asia and the Middle East Brett Menadue said: “We are very excited to have Mark take the helm in the UAE. Mark’s strong business insight, combined with his legal expertise, positions him as a highly capable leader for this role.”

“With Mark’s passion for fostering empathetic client and lawyer relationships, he is well placed to meet the growing demand for ALSPs within the region.”

Mr Dodd added: “I’m thrilled to take up this role in the UAE. It’s such an exciting and dynamic region. I can’t wait to build upon our strong reputation in the region.”

“My priority will be to deliver customer-centric services to our fantastic client base and to ensure our brilliant lawyers are supported and thriving in our market-leading business model.”
