Parachuting in a competition lawyer to a leading logistics company
At very short notice, a leading logistics company required a senior lawyer with strong management experience to lead a team of six senior competition lawyers. It required a lawyer who had worked in a highly regulated environments and had experience of the machinations of large organisations.
The Halebury lawyer parachuted into the competition team at very short notice to manage the competition team. They also took on some commercial projects (including a high value sales deal of strategic importance to the client).
The Halebury lawyer’s previous background working for the BBC was a great skills fit for the strategic project which contained elements of both logistics and online media. The lawyer’s previous experience working in-house ensured a wide range of skills to be able to work on BAU, special projects and practice areas outside commercial. The original contract was extended past the initial placement and the client is now utilising the Halebury Lawyer’s technology and online media experience in its strategic transactions team.
