Patton Boggs and Squire Sanders entered into the merger with an affiliation in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Problems began to spark when the law firm tried to merge operations and appoint Khalid Al-Thebity as managing partner.

Peter Crossley, the European and Middle East managing partner for Squire Patton Boggs, said the following in the release: “Khalid and his team are highly regarded, with a depth of experience and capability within sectors of strategic importance for our global firm. With a well-established Riyadh office we will be able to unlock opportunities in Saudi Arabia and throughout the region.”

Al-Thebity added: “We are very pleased to be affiliated with Squire Patton Boggs. The firm’s global network and its strength in key hubs across the Gulf means that we are very well-positioned to provide services to clients doing business or investing in the Middle East.”
