  • To Anonymous at 21-Jun-2013 1:57 pm, this is Anon at 20 June 2013 9:00 am, I could not resist responding to your last post.

    First, for the second time, I am NOT part of any Kuwaiti law firm. I have never been to Kuwait. Do I have to do some sort of Turing test to prove this to you?

    Second, I am not criticizing DLA Kuwait per se. They are obviously one of the leading firms, of which there are a number. For example, in Legal500 for Kuwait, the same five firms, including DLA, are listed in all the work categories (although Chambers only ranks DLA in third tier). Anyway, I am sure DLA is a very good firm in Kuwait. Not jealous, OK?

    Third, this whole conversation was triggered by the absurd - yes, absurd! - comment that DLA is the "elite" firm in Kuwait. Very good, yes, but "elite" - as in head and shoulders above all the others? Clearly not.

    Over you. Still time to 'fess.

  • This whole exchange is hilarious...

    Look, you're not helping DLA by trumpeting that it's "elite", which is really the last thing that comes to mind when you think of a good, second- or third-tier global firm. Come on. It's like a Baker McKenzie guy trying to convince the world that its firm is on par with Skadden Arps. Delusional self-promotion just doesn't work, whatever the merits of Baker (or DLA, for that matter).
