At a time of huge change in the legal industry, we are determined to continue leading the market as we have throughout our 85-year history. We do that by staying one step ahead and by constantly challenging ourselves to bring new ways of thinking to the most complex legal challenges our clients face. Over the past year we have worked with some of the world’s most sophisticated businesses on market-leading transactions that have changed their industries. This includes: advising on the largest oil refinery project in Vietnam (Nghi Son) and the joint venture between H.C. Starck and Vietnam’s largest private sector company, Masan Group; advising 888 Holdings Plc, in relation to its proposed takeover offer for bwin.party digital entertainment; and representing Novartis in its successful patent battle with MedImmune over Novartis’ blockbuster drug Lucentis. Our commitment to help our clients deliver their global strategies has seen us build a truly global network with our presence in 31 countries as well as our strong ties with relationship law firms in more than 100 countries where we are not present. This network has allowed us to become one of the largest and most connected law firms in our peer group, with a global reach and local depth that is unrivalled. So when we talk about global coverage, we are not just talking about having offices in some important cities around the world. We mean being able to combine our international resources and sector expertise to work on cross-border transactions directly in the markets and regions important to our clients.
