US Firms in the City Panel

Lean teams, high salaries, long hours, what other things do you think of when you hear "US Firm"?

One of KCLLS' most popular events of the year, the US Firms in the City Panel aims to make you stop and think.

Ever wondered what life is like beyond the Magic Circle? Do you think you're up to the challenge of working in an American firm? How different are the lifestyles and cultures really like?

Joining us for the night, we are honoured to have 5 lawyers who would like to share their candid views from the following US Firms:

  • Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP
  • Kirkland & Ellis International LLP
  • Sidley Austin LLP
  • Latham & Watkins LLP
  • Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP

It will be run following a 5-panel discussion, beginning with a moderated discussion, followed by an open floor questions-and-answer session and ending with a drinks reception.

Topic 1: Culture, Training and Myths of US Firms in the City.

Topic 2: The Future Strategy of US Firms in London
