WHAT WE’RE WATCHING
CLASHES - Law firm behemoth Dentons says it’s investigating its Saudi Arabia office. The firm’s disclosure of the investigation comes after an anonymous source claiming to work in the law firm’s Middle East practice complained to the firm of gender bias in the office where partners engage in polygamy (not illegal in Saudi Arabia). The person also said one partner in particular has demonstrated Islamic extremism. As The Careerist Vivia Chen writes, the situation highlights the difficulty that far-flung law firms have when imposing a global code of conduct with distinct local cultures involved.
