The Lewis Silkin team was led by corporate partner Paul Rajput, alongside corporate associates Barnaby Stokes and Simon Allum. Paul says “As longstanding counsel to Publicis Groupe, it has been a pleasure advising this major full service advertising holding company on several M&A deals that strengthen both its digital core and its fundamental belief in the power of world class creativity and innovation”.
