We’re back! Full details of the Rising Lawyers’ Society’s first event of 2022 are finally here! For returning friends, welcome back. A curious new member? Get ready for an evening of networking and insight – the chance to meet your in-house peers over canapes and drinks washed down with some wisdom from an in-house expert.

We will be joined by Tarun Tawakley who will be discussing “going global” – how to manage and overcome the challenges associated with supporting a business in multiple jurisdictions.
 
Tarun, now a partner at Lewis Silkin, was hired as Deliveroo’s first ever employment lawyer in 2017, tasked with creating a specialist team to oversee the company’s global operations. In his role as Head of Employment Law and Commercial Litigation Tarun successfully defended Deliveroo’s business model from legal and regulatory challenges across multiple jurisdictions. That work saw him recognised in The Lawyer’s Hot 100, which showcases "the most daring, innovative and creative lawyers from in-house, private practice and the Bar".
 
Tarun’s talk will be bookended by plenty of time to socialise in our private venue The Gallery, which sits alongside South Bank’s Sea Containers hotel. And for those that stick around we will be looking to hold post event drinks at the hotel’s rooftop bar 12th Knot (worth a Google).
 
So whether you’re facing overseas issues, interested in an aficionado’s insight or just dying to get back to a real life event this promises to be a pretty great way to spend a Thursday night.
 
If you have any queries, or if you or a colleague would like to attend, please let us know here.
