Lawyers from Shearman & Sterling, Kirkland & Ellis, Skadden and Quinn Emanuel take centre stage at London events

Less than a fortnight into 2019 and we’ve got a cracking brace of events coming up.

First up on Wednesday evening (16 January) is an event for students: ‘Why US law firms keep winning market share in London — with Shearman & Sterling’. The session takes place ahead of the US megafirm’s vac scheme application deadline, and features a panel discussion with speakers including Shearman & Sterling antitrust partner James Webber, European finance partner Korey Fevzi, and capital markets partners Marwa Elborai and Jacques McChesney. Also in attendance will be some of the firm’s London trainees and members of its graduate recruitment team. Find out more and apply to attend.

Then on Thursday evening (17 January) we have an event for trainees and junior lawyers. ‘Junior lawyer workshop and social — life in US firms in London’ with lawyers from Kirkland & Ellis, Skadden and Quinn Emanuel. The session — hosted at BARBRI London Moorgate — features short talks about what they have learned so far in their careers from Kirkland & Ellis associate Hannah McCarthy, Skadden co-head of private equity Richard Youle and Quinn Emanuel London co-managing partner Richard East. The talks will be interspersed with speed networking. Find out more and register to attend.

Remember, the 16 January event is for students and graduates only, and the 17 January event is for trainees and junior lawyers only.
