After obtaining both a bachelor of civil law and a bachelor of common law from McGill University in Montreal, Ayman was called to the Bar of Quebec, Canada in 2006. He went on to article and work for two large law firms before joining the international engineering giant SNC-Lavalin to manage its disputes and litigation matters worldwide.

Fluent in French and English, Ayman can also converse in Arabic. He has traveled extensively in North America, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

Marler is an established expert in the rule of law and public international law generally. I have seen him at work over the years and he is impressive. A barrister with a quick mind, an eloquent tongue and a talent with a pen, as well as having a keen sense of humour. I selected him to be my General Counsel at EQ-G for a reason.

Lawyers in private practice with talent and expertise in resolving MDB sanctions cases are few and far between, but Lee Marler is one of them. He has proven himself time and again to be knowledgeable and highly effective. He is also a fine advocate and draftsman, and this is why I instruct him – where necessary – to assist IACD in its efforts to curb corruption on AfDB financed projects.

An unparalleled blend of legal expertise in the area of International Administrative Law and an understanding of the mindset and functioning of legal departments at international institutions.”
