  • Not sure why it's a had line to believe and makes total sense. Dubai is the regional hub and firms are waking up to the fact that you can't be full service in 4 jurisdictions in the gulf, it's just not viable. Bahrain was always going to slim down for regional firms as there's not a lot going on there. If its genuinely a place requiring quality legal resource the numbers would reflect that. It's not. It requires a regional approach or quality suffers. It's the size of Brighton and should be lawyered accordingly. All of the firms in the gulf have slimmed and doing so in the quieter places is nothing other than sound business.

  • This article is very speculative and one would assume that the Lawyer would verify facts before print - Ms. Melanie Henry is still very much a part of the Bahrain operations at NR (two is incorrect). As for Of Counsel that have left - they have their reasons and to speculate is plain fool hardy!
