ISSUE IN BRIEF

A particularly tricky piece in the jigsaw of international expansion is Africa. This issue’s main interview is with Boris Martor, on the work of his Eversheds Africa Legal Institute to build knowledge-sharing activity that also results in referrals.

Manoeuvring in the Middle East is a touch less tricky of course − but times are changing there too, with both the UAE and Saudi Arabia rewriting some rules of engagement. This month we speak to leaders at Addleshaw Goddard, Clyde & Co, DentonsDWF, King & Wood Mallesons and Norton Rose Fulbright about covering more ground and what’s on their Middle Eastern horizons.
