Well, I was wondering what the £2.5m international war chest was going to buy them – and now we know: five Euro partners. That puts the kibosh on the world cruise idea. (Don’t know about you, but they probably should have announced this expansion first, instead of the rather weak sounding ‘we’re giving 10% of our profits to global expansion’ story they gave out earlier. Oh well, that’s the PR for you, law firms still struggling with that one.) Reply Link Britomart 2 February 2011 at 15:44 To be fair to Olswang, the Paris piece is always the hardest to put together – ask any international firm. This looks like a decent catch of people who fit with the core business. So it was probably worth the wait rather than rushing in.
