Many are highly recommended – as in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Brussels, China, Colombia, France, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey and the UK – or elite, as in Hungary, Indonesia and Taiwan. The firm added Christopher Jones as a partner in Brussels in October 2018, after he spent three decades at the European Commission building expertise on competition and energy. It lost partners Bill Batchelor in Brussels and Hubert Gilliéron in Geneva to rival practices.
