Just because our paths have diverged, it doesn’t mean we can’t stay connected. As “One firm. Your firm.”, we have always had a fantastic sense of community at Bird & Bird, and there’s no reason to leave that behind just because you’ve left the firm. 

Whatever your previous role was with us and wherever your career has taken you today, we’d love to keep in touch, whether that’s virtually or at our next alumni party. In our Alumni community, you will find not only a network of over 2500 members from more than 30 countries but also a range of exciting and exclusive benefits:

  • Subscribe to a six-month complimentary membership with the Association of Corporate Counsel
  • Join one of our sports teams, whether that’s football, softball, netball or squash.
  • Use our business lounge facilities 
  • Search the Bird & Bird Alumni directory and (re-)connect with former colleagues
  • Browse job opportunities within the network
  • Stay up to date with the latest alumni, industry, and firm news 
  • Develop your personal and professional skills with our exclusive skills training sessions
  • Attend amazing Bird & Bird Alumni parties all around the globe
  • Receive newsletters with the most up-to-date firm developments
  • Discover more benefits on our Alumni portal here

It’s fantastic to see the progress we’ve made with our global alumni network since its launch in June 2018. The feedback we receive from our alumni is very positive and reinforces our ambition to continue to develop the network, for the benefit of our people past and present. For the future, my personal goal is to ensure we stay in contact with as many of our alumni as possible and, of course, provide important and useful benefits for the whole alumni community.

One key challenge is the digital market combined with data protection. There is a lot of uncertainty from an in-house point of view, there are a lot of challenges around resourcing perspective. There is always so much to do and financial resources are always limited - we have to find ways of being as efficient as possible and embracing the available technology.

Perhaps contrary to popular belief among lawyers, uncertainty is not always a challenge but rather a blank canvas ready to be painted by yourself. Motivational quotes aside I really do think there is an advantage to leaving things to chance at times, and when I decided I wanted to change jobs I promised myself that I had to give myself some time to reconsider what I wanted to spend my time on. My colleagues at Bird & Bird were extremely supportive of my decision and that gave me the courage to trust in my abilities.

I made a drastic shift from providing expert advice to leading a team of experts, and then the pandemic happened. It’s had a huge impact on tourism, but I’m already seeing a greater appreciation for travel. There was already some consolidation before the pandemic, and I feel that COVID-19 has just worked as a catalyst to the existing changes in the travel industry. I’m really looking forward to what’s next.

I believe that our culture at Bird & Bird contributes a lot to the value of our global alumni network. As ‘One firm. Your firm.’, our alumni feel part of the community even after they leave, and we give them the opportunity to keep in touch with their former colleagues, either virtually or in person at our alumni parties. In our Helsinki office in October 2022, we celebrated together with our Alumni a Halloween party, which was a lot of fun!
