White & Case is a true global heavyweight, with 2000 lawyers spread across 38 offices in 26 countries and annual revenues approaching US$1.3bn. It suffered, along with every other major international player, during the global financial crisis, which forced the firm to address its headcount and refocus on its long-term strategy. The firm has emerged from this period in an enviably strong position, under the stewardship of Chairman Hugh Verrier.

In conversation with award-winning former CNN presenter Todd Benjamin, Hugh Verrier will discuss the challenges and opportunities facing a global law firm in the aftermath of the financial crisis. Verrier’s career at White & Case includes significant spells in Russia and Indonesia, and his international insight will be brought to bear on such topics as the global energy markets, the enforced contraction of the legal profession in recent years, the involvement of major global firms in the financial crisis and its aftermath, and the challenge of responding to changes in the geopolitical landscape.
