"Global law firms have extraordinary capabilities. Each has thousands of highly skilled professionals, increasingly connected around the world, with access to all the resources and experience of their firms like never before. They also can wield the force of the law. . . to change the social order, and. . . have tremendous power for good."
Hugh Verrier, Chairman
