With the recent events in the Middle East and North Africa, it has become more than normal for business leaders to be asked about their companies’ operations in these regions. This can be a very uncomfortable question, and companies may feel that they have to answer it. Many firms are trying to explain what they do and how they do it in such a way that people understand.
The reality is that most businesses are quite small and operate in a very small area. Therefore, many business leaders don’t have the resources and time to properly explain how they do business. Most international business law firms are also small, so they are less able to effectively advise their clients on these issues.
