  • I wonder when will western lawfirms be allowed to run their business without the sponsorship of a lazy Saudi lawyer who shows up once a week and racks up 50% of revenues. When will Saudi start respecting its WTO obligations?

    Keep the myth alive - it is clearly an example of Linklaters joining up with a progressive Saudi firm so that it can take its activities in Saudi Arabia to the next level.

    I seem to recall Monaji was a player in Trowers' doomed Jeddah office. Perhaps the Skeptic Sceptic will make a reappearance and tell us how Monaji went from a bit part in a failed office to a leading role at the newest alliance in town.

  • western lawyer working in the Kingdom:
    It is not only Saudi Arabia who imposes local sponsorship. You got Kuwait, India, Egypt, Iraq, etc. and also one important point most countries do not allow forging lawyers to practice local laws which is even exist in the US & UK.
    Another point you still cannot speak the language, so thanks god you have a legal job overseas!
