Concluding this first panel review and tender process was for us a natural continuity as we look forward to enhancing our presence globally. The panel allows for greater global integration and will help drive growth for our business and our clients and partners. I am looking forward to working with the excellent teams at Baker Mackenzie, DLA Piper, Linklaters and Allen & Overy.’
