  • 'Rees is an accomplished litigator and advocate... he is also a born leader. He exudes clarity of thought and purpose, has a calm but determined disposition... he is instantly likeable.'

    Does The Lawyer have a crush on this guy?

  • My favourite part of this article is the quote from Rees "the big mistake firms make is being on transmit rather than receive." He is absolutely right. It is really crucial for us external counsel to have a thorough understanding of the client's business and its needs. Otherwise as he said, we will be incredibly naive in pitches and we will be telling them things they already know.

  • As someone who has worked with PR at his previous firms and who has worked with Shell since he joined, I can confirm that he is worth the plaudits and "gets it" - as the transmit/receive comment shows. Notwithstanding the general hagiography that stands as a proxy for The Lawyer's "journalism", this was a good article that shows why he was hired.
