BossladiesLegal Womena Latham Watkins

Womena in partnership with Latham & Watkins LLP hosted BossladiesLegal on November 27. Eighteen female entrepreneurs from across Dubai received legal consultations from lawyers at Latham & Watkins LLP, on questions related to opening and operating businesses in the UAE. Legal topics covered included corporate licensing and structuring; technology (websites, IP, e-commerce and contracts), and finance (banking laws and agreements).

The event opened with an introduction by Elissa Freiha, Managing Director and Founder of Womena, emphasizing the commitment of Womena to support female tech entrepreneurs in the Middle East through the launch of the Bossladies network.  The network launched in October 2017 in Dubai at the #BossladiesBreakfast where attendees shared about the challenges they face, the keys to their success, and how Womena can support them in the future. BossladiesLegal is only the first of several future workshops that will address the needs and concerns of MENA’s female tech entrepreneurs. 

Lawyers Eyad Latif, Associate with the Corporate and Mergers & Acquisitions Practice, and Brian Meenagh, Partner with the Technology Transitions Group and practice, welcomed entrepreneurs to the event and shared about the law firm’s commitment to support entrepreneurs in the UAE and promote inclusion through initiatives such as Women Enriching Business.

During the event, lawyers Eyad Latif and Omar Maayeh advised on corporate licensing and structure questions; Brian Meenagh and Madonna Kobayssi advised on technology; and Aly Kassam advised on finance.
