Malcolm GF Webb of MGF Webb is the number one practitioner in New Zealand for regulatory communications legal expertise, according to the fourth edition of The International Who's Who of Regulatory Communications Lawyers published by Who's Who Legal in January 05.

Mr Webb received more nominations from clients and peers in the course of the research than any other regulatory communications practitioner in the country, and was described as 'very very good' by one respondent. The book is a result of six months of independent research incorporating feedback from lawyers and in-house counsel, and covers 238 lawyers in 39 separate jurisdictions.

This book represents a truly global, highly qualitative survey of only the best regulatory communications lawyers, based on exhaustive research."

The fourth edition of The International Who's Who of Regulatory Communications Lawyers will be included in the 2006 edition of The International Who's Who of Business Lawyers, a compendium volume of all 25 practice areas covered by Who's Who Legal's separate single volume publications.
