  • I do believe that more enjoinments are coming over the next few months at Aljadaan and this is Tim's job to evaluate the situation and give final image to London management rather than Dubai management.
    But, the question now is:
    Where has the mouse gone!?

  • Ah ah, noted...
    (While enjoyable, however, this discussion doesn't really explain how Al Jadaan manages to stay on top while bleeding associates and never "making senior associates". I'm curious about that...)
    Cheers

  • It really isn't rocket science how Al Jadaan wins awards. Joint projects with CC, a global giant and one of the largest ME practices.
    Who need associates when you can just add a Saudi partner to a CC transaction team.

  • Where did Envy go? I was expecting a rebuttal of all the points raised about Al Jadaan.

    Even DLA managed a more spirited defence when it was under attack a month or two ago.

    Will no-one defend Al Jadaan?

  • A little birdy told me...

    that Clifford Chance's associate firm in Saudi, Al Jadaan, is suffering from something of a retention problem. CC are sending a senior partner out there ostensibly to ramp up their presence in the area. But insiders tell RoF that it won't do anything to stop the flood of fleeing associates?

    Envy, Roll on Friday is rolling and we heard no tiny bit of rebuttal from you. It appears Al Jadaan is darn for sure.....or maybe RoF is interviewing you right now?!

  • I guess Envy is too busy covering his own arse!

  • Some more facts. Expat turnover in past 12 months now at 90%. Saudi turnover below partner level in past 12 months 60%.

    Someone should poll for current associate job satisfaction. On a scale of 1 for happy and 10 for miserable the result would be about a 12.

  • Maybe Envy has been sacked from Al Jadaan's BD department and deported. Or if the culture of the place is more toxic than Chernobyl as some of the above comments seem to suggest, perhaps he's got radiation poisoning

  • Maybe Envy has been tasked with changing the accounting system at Al Jadaan from the 15-minute unit to a 30-minute unit. This will ensure that profits stay up in a slow market.

    Makes me wonder why the rest of use 6-minute units if the market leader (head and shoulders above the rest of us) uses 15 minute units.
