Gays in the middle east: missed opportunity?
Firms waste the opportunities presented by gay lawyers who don't have children and thus might be more prepared to move to the Middle East by not being more proactive in defending homosexuality and standing by their gay lawyers in the region.
Homosexuality might be out-lawed under (readings of) Islam, but it is also against (traditional readings of) Christianity, yet gay people won rights in the West even when people here were a lot more Christian than they are today.
Middle Eastern business needs Western law firms as much as Western law firms need Middle Eastern business - if law firms banded together they could promote equality effectively, but so far individual businesses are unwilling to do this because they fear they will simply lose business to their rivals.
