Dubai Norton Rose Fulbright lawyers talking defection
June 10, 2013
A large number of lawyers from the Dubai office of recently merged firm Norton Rose Fulbright is reportedly considering a defection to Baker Botts.
Up to eight partners from Fulbright - the entire contingent of the US legacy firm, are said to be in discussions about a possible move. The Norton Rose lawyers and the Fulbright lawyers are understood to be squeamish about the merger on the basis of both culture and profitablity issues.
