Anil Arora himself is excited about the move, citing Mishcon de Reya's innovative approach and societal impact: "I am thrilled to be joining Mishcon de Reya, a law firm that has a global reputation for delivering innovative solutions to complex legal matters. One of the main attractions of Mishcon is its relentless pursuit of challenging the status quo, which extends beyond the legal industry to the societal impact made by its clients and its people. As part of the Emerging Companies and Venture Capital Team, I am eager to work with its incredible clients that aspire to address the global issues of our time. We share a similar vision of embracing uniqueness, having fresh ideas and working towards a larger common goal."
