Join us on the afternoon of Wednesday 12 October for a virtual student event with Willkie Farr & Gallagher, ranked by The Lawyer magazine as the fastest growing US law firm in London and winner of Legal Cheek’s annual ‘Best Law Firm for Quality of Work’ award.

We’ll be hearing from partners and counsel across a range of practice areas – including private equity, corporate insurance, competition, litigation and international arbitration – about what life is like at Willkie’s London office.

With global turnover now exceeding $1billion, and Willkie having more than doubled in size in the UK capital over the last five years, it’s been an exciting time for the firm.

Time: 4pm to 6pm
Location: Virtual event
Level: Students, Graduates

The speakers will share their experiences of being part of that journey, give insights into some of their recent work and consider the big commercial awareness themes driving the global economy. Also on the agenda will be advice for students hoping to secure training contracts.
