The antitrust lawyer who recently worked with Emirates airlines on its proposed merger with Qantas Airways has reportedly joined the UK’s highest-grossing law firm in its Sydney branch, according to reports. Dave Poddar has joined Clifford Chance LLP, whose revenue rose 28 percent in the Asia-Pacific region in the year ended April 30.
