Along with ASU officials and local business leaders, they discussed entrepreneurship, trade policies, circular economies and innovation in the global marketplace. Thursday Arizona and Oman are both desert regions that are reworking their economies to move from the past to the future, according to the chief innovation officer at Arizona State University.
Emma Havas, Travers Smith, made partner: What has been your career-defining moment? This may sound like a strange response, but probably the decision a few years ago not to go for partnership at that stage.
I took an alternative career path in the interim and coming through to partnership on a different timeframe and in a different way worked really well for me for a number of reasons.
I was senior counsel for a while and then went through the promotion process while on my second period of maternity leave. Advice for dealing with clients? Get to know them and keep communicating with them.
Understanding the world that they operate in and what is important to them will help in delivering a tailored and more personal service. Ian Keefe, Travers Smith, made partner: What advice do you have for those hoping to make partner? Private equity is a small world and personal relationships can be important.
It's not about being super confident or extrovert, but you're never too junior to start building your own network. If you work with someone on a deal, keep in touch — you never know when you'll come across them in the future. What are the key skills needed to do your job? Learning to step back and see the bigger picture is important.
As a trainee or junior associate you're usually rightly focused on the task at hand, but as you get more senior you need to be able to pull the different parts of the deal together. Putting partnership to one side, my career-defining moment was deciding to make the move from Edinburgh to London in I thoroughly enjoyed my training contract at my previous firm, but was keen to broaden my client exposure and to join a private equity-focused team.
Travers provided that for me and also offered an environment where I got the opportunity to work alongside some of the best private equity lawyers in the City. It is a given in a PE environment that hard work, commitment and stamina are prerequisites.
There are a lot of talented lawyers out there who can do that; I therefore think that being able to differentiate yourself from your peers and find your own niche that gives you an edge is probably the biggest challenge. An ability to understand commercial issues and predict where they are likely to arise; the ability to explain legal concepts clearly and succinctly; the ability to juggle multiple workstreams and separate teams; and the ability to think creatively to find solutions to problems within the confines of the relevant legal framework.
Competition is fierce and maintaining a level of performance for an extended period comes with personal sacrifice. We see investments all the way from inception and structuring through to exit, and become trusted advisers to both our private equity sponsor clients and the management teams of their portfolio companies.
What has been your career defining moment? This was a demanding and high-profile transaction, which included a number of innovative front-of-market features in the debt documentation, such as being one of the first European term loans to utilise New York law, high yield-style incurrence covenants.
This deal taught me a number of valuable lessons and helped me develop fundamentally as a partner.
Anela Musat, CMS, made partner: Private equity clients are a smart, sophisticated, demanding and sometimes fickle bunch. Reaction times are fast, stakes are high and relationships are pretty easy to make or break on a whim, without the constraints of a legal panel. But there is one thing I found works universally well — when wining and dining clients, wait for coffee to talk business.
What do you think is the most challenging thing about making partner in PE now? A relatively inflexible partnership model.
For women in particular, partnership tends to come in their mids which is a tricky time, when everything often comes together at once career, family and generally coming into your own and it can often feel like a house of cards without the right support.Share — copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format Adapt — remix, transform, and build upon the material for any purpose, even commercially.
