    Among the many attractions V&E held for me was the incredible opportunity to be affiliated with one of the great international law firms with one of the most impressive rosters of clients around the world and with a wonderful, collaborative culture. V&E provides a great platform for us with our deep presence in Asia and other international regions and its strong M&A, IP, and existing antitrust capabilities.
