Quentin Poole

As Head of International Projects it's Quentin's job to take overarching responsibility for the firm's international practice, reporting to the Board. This is a full time role in which he plays a material part in devising the firm's international strategy and then implementing it. This means he works closely with our offices and best friends all over the world – and wherever possible engages with our international clients. Having held the most senior leadership roles at the firm over the last 20 years, Quentin considers it a joy to be able to now concentrate all of his time and attention on the development of our international business.

Highlights

Quentin's mantra has always been that, in terms of physical assets, a law firm is nothing more than bricks, mortar and computers. The nuts and bolts of law firms are all the same, and they generally hire the same bright people. If we are going to differentiate ourselves, the only way we can do that is by having people that are more motivated than everyone else, who enjoy what they do, and who care about delivering the very best service for clients.

Every single one of us cares about what we do and why we're doing it, so it's never just another job to us. That's one of the reasons we have featured in the Great Places to Work rankings published by The Financial Times every year since they began 13 years ago. The way we operate as a single team is the hallmark of the business and sets the firm apart from others.

Quentin is also proud of the way the firm has put itself on the international map in recent years. We now have offices in Canada, China, Singapore, Germany, France, Monaco, Russia and the UAE, and in doing so we have expanded our client base, our expertise and our horizons. Most importantly, those offices are now part of our single team for clients.
