    restrictive clause

    I read the following sentence on a law firm's website:

    "Winston & Strawn’s Geneva, Switzerland, office is set on the banks of Lake Léman between the Alps and the Jura mountains. The Geneva office has a world-renowned international arbitration practice, which regularly handles the prosecution and defense of major claims before the International Chamber of Commerce, the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes, the Zürich Chamber of Commerce, and other international arbitral forums throughout the world."

    Shouldn't it be "practice which" or "practice that"?

    Thanks.

    The comma is wrong. I would use "that" rather than "which".
