Rival firms were generous in their praise of Russell McVeagh’s Pip Greenwood. “Pip’s the big brand there – we would rate her above everyone else at Russell McVeagh,” said one source. Another source said that Greenwood was known for her “fearless, forthright style” and also her organisational ability. “She’s not only a great lawyer but she also has an excellent project management style in terms of pulling things together – she knows what matters and what doesn’t,” said another source. “She’s very good at cutting the crap and getting to the heart of the matter.”
