The article discusses crossrail conflicts of the company Linklaters.

As government sponsor of Crossrail, the firm won the mandate to advise the Department of Transport (DfT). The firm headed by projects partner, Fiona Hobbs assembled a multidisciplinary team to win a competitive tender to advise the DfT. According to Hobbs the clients would be passed on to a separate firm.
