Reply Link Anonymous 5 November 2010 at 15:43 Some said that L&W would get Saudi Aramco but they guessed wrong: W&C still handles pretty much all of SA’s mandates. Reply Link sam 6 November 2010 at 02:40 WHo is Dr. Waleed? Is this the same guy who was with Gide? Gide just closed after 30 yrs so that does not bode well for WC if it is the same guy. I give this tie up 3 yrs max.This is a lesson for WC to have remained with Hassan Mahassani. Good luck to them all, but again my view much a wrong strategy. Reply Link Ben 18 November 2010 at 08:30 Gide had been with another Saudi lawyer for 30 years, then when he retired they went with dr waleed 3 years ago. It didn’t work well between them and then Gide decided to leave the whole Gulf region (they closed dubai and abu dhabi as well), and dr waleed announced its new alliance with W&C.
