The annual alumni magazine celebrates the achievements of our people, both past and present.

In this issue, we explore leadership through a variety of perspectives and hear from inspirational alumni on how the role of a leader has evolved.

Featured profiles include: 

  • Former partner Michael Shaw who reflects on a career that has taken him to the apex of the Royal Bank of Scotland;
  • Kate Jenkins, Australia’s Sex Discrimination Commissioner, recounts how her passion for equality was cemented as a partner in our employment practice;
  • Srin Madipalli and Tan Le: the alumni who are changing the word through tech.


The Herbert Smith Freehills alumni network spans the globe with over 4,500 members across 56 countries.

We are proud of our alumni and what they continue to achieve, and remain grateful for their significant contribution to the firm’s success.

Beyond their career with us, alumni can continue to keep up-to-date with our regional events, news and latest thinking. Contact [email protected] if you would like to connect with alumni or staff in a particular region or enquire about our alumni programme.
