DLA Piper has broken its ties with a second Saudi sponsor in six months, exchanging Abdulaziz Al Bosaily for Dr Alaa Naji.
Former DLA Piper lawyer Al Bosaily had been sent from Dubai to Riyadh in July 2008 after the firm’s previous alliance with local lawyer Abdulaziz Al Fahad ended.
At the time DLA Piper declared that global head of Islamic finance Oliver Agha would manage the Saudi office jointly, but Agha subsequently left the firm with a team of associates (The Lawyer, 13 October 2008).
Agha and his team were discussing several options, including setting up with Al Bosaily. It is unclear whether this will now take place.
Naji was previously a legal counsel at Saudi Arabian ;Airlines ;and general counsel at Sama Airlines.
DLA Piper now has 10 lawyers based in Riyadh.
