  • Another key departure from their Dubai office. Its Managing Partner is also being moved. Will parachuting in Muttawi plug the gap?
    Bahrain office also under pressure with work drying up and Neale Downes' departure to Taylor Wessing. What are Trowers' remaining specialisms in the Gulf?
    Time for London management to wake up to their MidEast problems.

  • Ahh...the old "i split my time between dubai / abu dhabi and london / manchester / new york". No you don't. You are based in london / manchester / new york but want people to think you know something about how things work in the middle east. Its not 2004 anymore, and clients don't fall for this. There is enough choice between law firms who are full service with lawyers on the ground (particularly in dubai) for clients to avoid having to pursuade someone in didsbury to interupt his roast lamb and mint sauce (they work on sundays don't you know) to decipher a document that probably needs on the ground hands-on experience. As for trowers, well they were a player, back in 2004 when other firms were more remote, but they seem to be slipping and even their relocated savoir seems to be unable to avoid this and is by all accounts realising that dubai has grown up, and the grown up players are bossing the playground.

  • Can the last person out of Trowers please turn off the lights? A jigsaw with lots of pieces from different jigsaw sets if their ever was one. If they were a pop band they would be called "Lack of Direction" and their TV show would be "Lost".

  • Andrew is a good guy who knows his stuff. This is a good move for Addleshaws and I'm sure Greavesy will do well. Would be surprised if he turns his back on waking up to the sunshine every day and return to the UK, unless he is looking to take up white water rafting!

  • I heard the Skeptic is too busy laughing at the previous Trowers article "Gubbins to reinvigorate the brand" to be able to respond to the departure of Mr Greaves.
    Meet the new boss - same as the old boss.
    Read the new story - same as the old story.

  • Trowers in the Middle East is in its final throes.

    What a great shame that such appalling mis-management by a few has led the "International Division" to this state of deterioration.

    Enjoy your 13% pay rise Mr Adlington and Mr Amison and then do the gracious thing by walking the same plank that you have pushed so many others off.
