Nextlaw In-House Solutions CEO Chris Pinnington said the service was a response to client demand for strategic guidance for their in-house teams.

“As part of Dentons, the largest, most innovative law firm in the world, we enjoy unique advantages, including the privilege of working with and learning from sophisticated clients across the globe, spanning diverse industry sectors, legal systems and cultures,” Mr Pinnington said.
