Dentons helps Al Jazeera change its image

Dentons helps Al Jazeera change its imageDenton Wilde Sapte has been ­giving lessons to global media ­network Al Jazeera on improving its image in the press.

A team including Doha-based client ­partner Safwan Moubaydeen, four London-based technology, media and telecoms and employment partners and the firm’s PR ­manager provided a week of ­seminars at the ­network’s Qatari headquarters.

Al Jazeera requested the training following rapid ­expansion that has seen it move into 70 countries, employing 3,000 staff. Dentons became global ­counsel for Al Jazeera ­earlier this year (The Lawyer, 11 February).
