Meet some LODs

We pour time and effort into handpicking our team of over 600 lawyers and consultants – we’ve interviewed over ten times that number.  They aren’t just technically brilliant, they also have to be able to work autonomously and be commercially savvy.

It’s hard to pin down, but they also need to have a bit of what we call the ‘LOD magic’. Get to know some of them here.
