TerraLex Proves Serving International Clients Requires Exceptional Global Legal Capability
TerraLex member firm RPC in London recently needed advice across 14 jurisdictions for one of their major international clients, who was looking at plans to protect their employees when and if they return to office working during the Covid-19 global pandemic. Member firms were asked to provide advice within a strict timescale (only a couple of days) and a fixed budget. Lucy Houghton, Associate in the Commercial, Technology and Outsourcing team at RPC in London said ‘a project involving 14 jurisdictions can, on the face of it, appear very daunting for a client. Our membership of TerraLex makes it easy for us and the client – member firms quickly grasped the requirements and provided commercial, user-friendly advice to include in our summary for the client. It was excellent, and very efficient, advice." Olly Bray, Senior Partner of RPC and Head of the Commercial team said ‘Serving international clients requires global legal capability so that we can respond quickly to a client’s needs wherever they operate. Our membership of TerraLex is a crucial element of our client service strategy’.
