  • Gavin, Chris and Samer. Yawn. Just like the last raid a few years ago, the whole office will not go with them. Decent lawyers and staff are able to get jobs elsewhere. Doesn't Gavin realise Dubai is a small town and he is known for this modus operandi? Do they have any clients to take?

  • Reminds me of the Kardashians "trying to Take Dubai".

  • Gavin Watson is well known for this in Dubai. Every move is his last, every Firm worse than the previous. It is the second time to kill an office. Dewey's problems are well documented but it will have served the Dubai office well, as anyone who has had dealings with them will know they have had their problems. It will be interesting to see who will get Managing Partner status - Chris Sioufi or Gavin Watson. It seems that they can't live with or without each other. Camille is the big draw here, and they are probably hoping he will feed work to them in Dubai. Dechert should have done more diligence and opened in Abu Dhabi where there is at least a chance of building a client base.

  • It is well known that there's too many law firms in Dubai; they are all struggling for work. Good luck making friends Dechert.

  • Abu Dhabi would had been better. There are too many firms in Dubai scratching around for work. It has been quiet for a long time.

  • Wasting their time. Dubai lawyers are sniffing around for work to the extent that even the big players are desperate.

  • Only the big boys will survive. The work simply isn't there.
