International Work:
As clients bring more work in-house and place greater demands on external advisers, the need for pragmatic, collaborative and cost effective solutions from counsel is critical. Technological disruption, increased competition and geopolitical uncertainty are driving unprecedented changes in the practice of law. The flipside of an increasingly challenging cross-border environment is greater opportunity for those firms and providers able to anticipate risks and realign their services accordingly.
