Simon Crossley: I think if I look back over the last ten years since I’ve been working at Eversheds, the one thing that I reflect on in that time is a theme of change a theme of globalisation and we’ve had to respond to that in our IP practice. So if you would have been talking to me ten years ago, we would have had some very strong teams around the world but now we are a very strong coordinated international IP team. And that’s what clients want from us, so if a client comes to us and says ‘I need you to protect our brand in Europe, in the Middle East and in Africa’ we can deliver that through our teams across the world and that’s what we’re set up to do and I think that’s what clients are asking us to do more and more now.

Gaeten Cordier: We have a full service IP team. We do transactional, we do litigation, we do soft IP, we do patent, litigation transactional matters. We do [insert], we do patent prosecution. Clearly it’s a full service. And this international IP team, I mean we have more than 70 IP lawyers, in Europe, in the Middle East, in Asia, in Africa. We do local advice and we do international work. I mean clearly I think we have a unique, clearly unique practice in the market and I think we are unique because the international IP team is very close. I mean we are used to work together every day.
