Heba Ali
Described by one of her peers as being “everything you would need in a lawyer”, Heba Ali was hired by Lenovo in 2014 to establish the organisation’s legal department for the Middle East and Africa region.

Having worked as a lawyer in New York for 15 years and Asia for almost 20 before joining Asian Development Bank which focusses on developing jurisdictions, Christopher Stephens tells the In-House Community about the “cultural arrogance” behind assuming that the more longstanding laws are the better ones and will automatically work in areas whose traditions and cultures are disparate. He also talks about how to motivate younger lawyers, revealing that giving them credit for their work has to go beyond remuneration.
