This is an on-going process that will be fully completed over the next 12 months. Nevertheless, our management teams have been very professional in their approach and the Practice Group Heads have all started mapping clients from both firms and setting the strategy for their respective groups. Overall, I am most pleased with the cultural fit of the two firms - we actually get on together very well. Personally, it has been an absolute pleasure getting to know my new colleagues in London, Manchester, Madrid and Mexico."
