"We are a European law firm and that won't change."
Michael Chissick makes the firm's position clear in light of the result of the United Kingdom's referendum on membership of the European Union.
Yesterday the United Kingdom made the historical decision to leave the European Union (EU), a decision which has led to - amongst other things - the resignation of David Cameron as prime minister. While the country's exit is not expected to be finalised until sometime in 2018, Michael Chissick, managing partner of Fieldfisher, has made it absolutely clear that the vote changes nothing in terms of the firm's European outlook.
"While the UK has voted to leave the EU, Fieldfisher has not. We are a European law firm and that won't change."
