How law firms go global — with Clyde & Co

Friday 6 November, from 2pm to 4pm, taking place virtually

Legal Cheek is joining forces with Clyde & Co for a virtual student event that explores the forces behind its 22 consecutive years of revenue growth and expansion across six continents.

Lawyers from the 50-office firm will join a Legal Cheek journalist for a panel discussion, where they will reflect on how Clyde & Co’s expertise in sectors underpinning the global economy — insurance, transport, energy, infrastructure and trade & commodities — has helped to drive a remarkable two decades.

They will explain their first-hand experience of law firm expansion while also reflecting on what the Covid-19 pandemic means for law firms and their clients as the world enters a new period of uncertainty and change.

Date: Friday 6 November 2020
Time: 2pm to 4pm
Location: Virtual event
Level: Students, Graduates

Drawing on their own career journeys, they will advise students how they can best position themselves to get a foothold in the profession at this challenging time.
