Beyond Geographical Differences

US vs UK Lateral Partner Vetting

APRIL 13TH | 11:00am – 12:30pm ET

Whether adding bench strength, launching a complementary practice, or sparking new energy and innovation internally, many law firms look to hiring lateral partners to drive their growth strategy. Firms are often accustomed to hiring in different markets, however, crossing the pond brings challenges that move beyond geographical differences.

In continuing our commitment to full compliance in every country where our clients operate, we are hosting a 90-minute webinar to help guide you through navigating lateral hiring in the United States vs. the United Kingdom. Together with CM Murray, a leader in labor and employment partnership in the UK, we will dive deep into risks and impact areas, and offer actionable guidance to prepare for performing due diligence overseas.

While we share one language – and even that is debatable – we have two quite different landscapes when it comes to vetting and hiring lateral partners.

Join a panel of industry insiders – including Decipher’s Michael Ellenhorn, CM Murray’s Zulon Begum and Merrill April, and Barnes & Thornburg LLP General Counsel Karoline Jackson – on April 13th from 11:00am to 12:30pm ET as they explore:

  • Key issues for U.S. law firms to consider when hiring partners in the London market;
  • The legal and regulatory issues to be aware of when exchanging confidential information as part of the due diligence process;
  • What a good lateral partner questionnaire looks like; and
  • Consequential issues for the firm and lateral when taking up references.
