So, in corporate legal departments around Europe, we lawyers nod sagely and promise that we will accompany our clients on these exotic projects. Of course, most of the lawyers are Europeans like me, with little or no exposure to the legal systems of those places. So (like all good professionals) we make it up as we go along and hide our copy of Libyan Law for Dummies under a pile of learned papers.
