  • A good move for Clydes - Adrian is good lawyer with a lot of regional knowledge and connections, as well as being a very nice chap

  • What does this have to do with Saudi? When was this guy the head of anything in Saudi Arabia? I am not sure I understand.

  • Another example of a net contributor leaving Trowers because of the firm's inability to axe the partnership's expensive failures.
    AM's promotion is a positive step but only time will tell whether Trowers has the stomach for "well done and farewell" conversations with several old timers.

  • Good luck to Adrian and well done for finally moving on after so long at Trowers.
    With one exception, everyone connected with the Trowers Saudi practice has now gone to other firms. A classic example of how not to run a law firm - lack of partner presence on the ground in Saudi, no senior management commitment from London, inappropriate associate staffing (other office rejects), and a failure to overcome a MENA office-wide silo mentality.
    Thank God there is Birmingham and the new high speed train in just what Trowers will need to allow its London partners to commute to work.

  • A sensible move by all involved. Clyde & Co are a serious player in the region and are particularly knowledgeable on local laws and practice. Adrian is a good lawyer, committed to MENA and a good fit with Clydes.

    Some of us were rejects from other firms.
