Career acceleration?


SKAO

I completed the LLM Corporate Finance Law in 2005. It is the best thing I have done in my career. The Westminster LLM programme is unique. I actually started whilst it was the LLM Venture Capital, and it changed during my time at Westminster.

It focused my previous experience in business and finance, and gave me deep knowledge and understanding on how financing transactions are structured. Coming from a non-legal background, I quickly found my way around the courses, as the lecturers were first class.

I took modules such as Corporate Governance, Legal Aspects of International Finance, and Business Plans & Prospectuses. Corporate Governance was particularly good. Joe Tanega knows his stuff. Starting from the philosophical foundations, he led us to explore the tensions that can exist between directors and shareholders, and the various complex issues arising out of agency theory.

I made very good contacts during the programme, including lawyers from Europe, non-lawyers and investment managers from the UK.

I would recommend the Westminster LLM Corporate Finance Law to anyone looking to accelerate their career in finance and law. It certainly changed the course of my professional life. I am now a senior partner in my own investor communication practice in London and Cambridge, with associate partners around the world.

Private Eq...

As a private equity professional with 15-year experience, you know how you post sounds to me SKAO (hopefully I am wrong here). I graduated, could not get the job in a major firm or a bank and started my own business (with is a respectable albeit the only plausible step left). Investment relations/fund raising is the only thing which could be done under the circumstances, of course, I am a partner because it is me who has set up the firm in the first place - this is still modest as I could have called myself the CEO. I have mates all over the world who agreed to do occasional work on a commission basis, whom I decided to call associate partners. Am I correct or am I correct?
