  • It sounds like DLA has finally washed its hands of its Middle East offices. An unmitigated experiment by any account.

  • In what way is DLA "washing its hands of its Middle East offices." Are they shutting down offices? Last I checked, they are all still going concerns (to say the least). Al-Yaqout is on DLA's global board and he’s been in the DLA system for some time now. So if by "washing their hands of" you mean "fully committed and integrating," then yea. I guess I'd agree.

  • Anonymous comments have cheapened the quality of this forum. It seems that more and more anonymous writers these days complain about their given situation or whine about certain experience they had. How can they be respected if all they do is whine and complain?

  • It was only a matter of time for Dave Church to step down. The question is how will al-yaqout handle the situation that remains. For DLA to be back on the right track many people will be made redundant. It remains to be seen how DLA will address their long term office leases. Interesting to see how al-yaqout tries to turn things around

  • Absurd overexpansion has been typical of UK law firms in the region (i know from personal experience) and DLA are among the ranks of UK law firms which made embarrassing redundancies - often disguised as 'poor performance' reviews and strongarmed lawyers to jump before being pushed.
    What business recruits aggressively when billable hours are pitiful, work is scarce and the region over-lawyered? This hire then fire yoyo mentality is too common with large egotistical firms.
    Hubrus mentality akin to what we see in the M&A takeovers where value is destroyed.
    Hiring many lawyers is a way they pretend business is booming.
