Baker McKenzie parts ways with Emirati law firm Habib Al Mulla 

International law firm Baker McKenzie will cut ties with UAE based law firm following controversial remarks made on social media by the Firm’s principal, Habib Al Mulla. 

In a statement on Baker McKenzie’s website the firm said: “Baker McKenzie and Dr Habib Al Mulla can confirm they will be parting ways. The separation process is underway, and we remain committed to supporting both clients and employees in the UAE and the wider region.” The firm also highlighted that any social media comments made by Haib Al Mulla reflect his own views and not that of the firm. 

Earlier this month Al Mulla posted a Twitter thread, commenting on the problem of ‘the thought and movement of homosexuality in the West’. His tweets followed discussions on Twitter about a controversial video made for Emirati Women’s Day, which was celebrated in the UAE at the end of August.

Following Baker McKenzie’s announcement, Al Mulla took to Twitter saying that his remarks stemmed from his convictions from his religion and principles, which he would not apologise for. He also confirmed Baker McKenzie’s announcement and said his office will continue to serve customers independently.
