Using a case study of the lifecycle of a tech startup, four of the firm’s lawyers will explain the role that they play in the client journey, from the initial idea and formation of the company, through financing, development and growth, onto exit. The speakers will bring to life the impact that lawyers can have on a high-growth company and highlight how the connections formed at an early stage can result in long-lasting relationships. The lawyers will offer an insight into different practice areas, including venture capital, corporate, technology, litigation and employment.

The speakers will also reflect on their career journeys to date and give advice to aspiring lawyers.

The speakers

• Tom Macleod, partner in the venture capital and corporate team
• Rupam Davé, partner in the technology, data and digital team
• Lizzie Williams, managing associate in the commercial litigation team
• Lizzy Davies, trainee in the employment team

After short talks, a presentation and a Q&A, there will be virtual networking with the speakers, Harbottle trainees and members of the firm’s graduate recruitment team.

Apply to attend. You’ll be asked to submit two questions for the speakers.
