  • A number of firms in Dubai have been forced to cut lawyers. Trowers, Hadef, DLA, Simmons, Clifford Chance, Ashurst, etc. Many others have forced people to work in Abu Dhabi or accept reduced benefits. Don't expect to read much about it though!

  • Why Latham's didn't launch in Saudi instead of Abu Dhabi (which is about an hour from Dubai) is beyond ridiculous. Every firm without a Saudi office is now kicking themselves for not having a Saudi presence.

  • Because its extremely difficult to open an office in Saudi due to restrictions like partnership, sponsors, finding a reputable local office etc. Abu Dhabi on the other hand has none of those restrictions.
