The lawyers' innovationIn the context of this very complex, first multi-party alliance for the MoD, the firm became the trusted lynchpin for the project. It designed the basic structure, which involved a lot of creative thinking from a 'ring of fire' to protect the MoD's IP to negotiating indemnity insurance to protect the MoD from the effects of poor design. The MoD has issued a legal partnering handbook where the firm's work on this project is held as best practice.
