the best teams on any matter, in any

given jurisdiction, at any given time.

That takes a depth of knowledge

about the markets in which we

operate and flexibility to adapt to

our clients' needs. It's vital that we

know the leading independent law

firms worldwide and build good

relationships with them.

How do you do it?

The team works closely with the

lawyers to identify the right law firm

for each transaction. Our relationships

are built over many years of working

together and they are constantly

evolving to meet the needs of

our clients.

We invest a lot of time and resources

in getting to know our relationship

firms better. We hold joint training

programmes, knowledge-sharing

initiatives, secondment programmes,

conferences and client events all over

the world.

Let's take Africa. We have good

relationships across the continent

and we know these firms really well.

Our partners are on the ground

regularly and we have seconded

lawyers to some of our relationship

firms. We host our annual EXPLORE

programme that welcomes over

20 lawyers from more than 10

African jurisdictions to our offices in

London. We also run an annual Legal

Exchange Symposium, which brings

together 150 lawyers from across

Africa for a two-day event. This level

of commitment to building

relationships is applied worldwide.

It is key to our success.

Why have an International

Relations team?

Quality is at the heart of everything we

do. Much of our work is cross-border

and the International Relations team

is there to support the lawyers to

ensure that our clients get the very

best advice. We are able to assemble
