The Portfolio Lawyer with Jonathan Scott
Jonathan retired as Senior Partner and Executive Chair of Herbert Smith Freehills in 2015, and has since taken on a number of external appointments. He has sought roles which would be “intellectually challenging” and “take him out of his comfort zone” as well as enabling him to “put something back”. Does this resonate with what you’re after? Members will learn a lot from hearing how Jonathan has gone about building his portfolio.
