Whilst we nearly always feature the best and brightest experts on the global legal and M&A landscapes, we’ve often not ventured into the security and interior design sectors.

As always, we aim to be your monthly source for all of the latest news and features from across the corporate landscape. This month, we have placed a focus on showcasing variety.

It’s official. Holiday fever has gripped the editorial department. As I type, my keyboard is positively surrounded by seasonal paraphernalia – mostly cards and various gifts in stages of being unwrapped – and there’s a faint smell of sweet treats in the air. Yet, all over the world, business carries on. The wheels turn. Deals are made. Sales are processed. There’s never a quiet moment. So, for the next week at least, the editors and writers of the department will keep their collective heads down and crack on.
