"PLC's Doing Business In... guide gave me an excellent overview on complex legal matters while on a plane to Mexico to instruct local legal counsel recently. It was an unfamiliar jurisdiction for me, but by the time I arrived I felt informed and comfortable walking into the meeting with the local experts. "

- Greg Bargeton, Head of Legal, William Grant & Sons
