I believe we are the best in-house team in EMEA. With our diverse work backgrounds and different networks and specialisms, we have an incredibly capable first-rate team that enjoys working on the most sought-after mandates in the region. When the going gets tough, the satisfaction of working with our incredible team gets me out of bed in the morning.
A satisfying challenge!
