ABSTRACT
This article reports that the company Linklaters has reviewed its financial services client base to avoid conflicts with its key institutional clients. it is understood that more than 20 per cent of the firm's global revenue now comes from just 10 financial institutions, including the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) PLC and JPMorgan. At a cross-departmental meeting held last month, the firm identified financial institutions that could cause Linklaters conflict problems if the firm were to continue to accept work from them. Linklaters is the preferred global supplier for RBS. However, it is thought that, in return for this prime position, Linklaters was asked to prioritise the bank above other clients in the sector.
