DLA Piper has appointed a new Middle East managing partner. Kuwait head Abdul Aziz Al-Yaqout took over from David Church on Oct. 1. Church will now work full-time as the firm's international development partner, a position he has held since 2005. "There is a feeling that it would be good to have an Arab run the Arabic offices," said Al-Yaqout. "It ties in with the firm's strategy as a whole, to be a strong local player with an international focus."
