What people say about our work

“PBC arranged for a team of partners, associates and trainees at Morgan Lewis to receive training in the law of welfare benefits. We all found the training to be of an exceptionally high standard and as a result of that training we are now well equipped to deploy our skills and knowledge ‘in the field’ at local advice agencies.”
