Welcome to the Herbert Smith Freehills Alumni network. Our network is open to all former partners and members of staff.

No matter how long ago – or how recently – you left, and whichever group, department or office you worked in, we would like you to join the network and stay in touch.

Our Story

Horizons 2014

Horizons 2014 - out now

Our Horizons magazine shares stories,
interviews and profiles of some of the many
incredible people who have helped shape and
define the firm we are today. This year's
magazine is hot off the press and ready for you
to delve into.

Inside Horizons this year:

  • Order in the courts: former colleagues
    don gowns and wigs in courtrooms across
    the globe.
  • Taking creative licence: are 'art' and
    'law' such opposite occupations as they first
  • Hay while the sun shines: reflections
    from former CEO Peter Hay.
  • Beyond the office door: Michael Walter
    opens up his photo album.

We hope you enjoy the magazine, and we'd
love to hear your feedback so do get in touch:

Our story

Drawing on the treasure-trove of facts and
personal stories contained in the books that
recount our firm's heritage, Our Story traces
the history and development of the firm we are
today. In Founding Fathers: The Early Years we
begin the story with the legal pioneers of the
Victorian era. The story will continue with On into
the War Years
, to be published next year.
