Global business in an era of higher interest rates — with White & Case

Thursday 27 April, 4pm to 6pm, taking place virtually

Join us on the afternoon of Thursday 27 April for a virtual student event with White & Case.

The theme is global business in an era of higher interest rates. As one of the world’s leading global law firms White & Case, which offers 50 training contracts annually in London, acts on many of the deals that drive the international economy. Its lawyers are attuned to a changing business environment where inflation, and higher interest rates, represent a major shift from the calm that prevailed before the pandemic.

From the recent collapse of Silicon Valley Bank to imminent concerns about the fragility of the commercial property market, the rising cost of money is causing shockwaves.

Amid the shake-up there are also opportunities for brave companies able to take advantage of lower valuations in growth sectors such as tech to seize market share.

For lawyers, such choppy conditions tend to be favourable, generating work across a wide range of corporate practice areas, from M&A to restructuring. Hear from them and build key commercial awareness at this invaluable Legal Cheek x White & Case event.

Location: Virtual event
Level: Students, Graduates
