Deploying a French-speaking in-house lawyer to the world’s largest telecommunications company
The world’s largest telecommunications company required a senior telecoms lawyer with fluent French to work across French speaking territories as a sole in-house lawyer in their Retail Sales Team.
Halebury was able to provide the client with a highly experienced senior in-house lawyer with substantial telecoms sector expertise who was also bi-lingual and able to negotiate in French. The lawyer worked with the client’s in-house legal team dealing with high value global contracts (up to £127mill in value) across French-speaking countries (France, Belgium, Luxembourg) as well as leading on RFPs and bid responses for those territories.
Halebury was able to provide the client with a lawyer who had the specialist technical and language skills and industry knowledge for this unique role. The seniority of the Halebury lawyer ensured she was able to integrate seamlessly into the business and team, work autonomously and hit the ground running.
