Alumni


As the impact of COVID-19 deepens around the world and communities come together to support one another we wanted to share our message of support with our alumni. If you have not already done so, why not take the opportunity to join our community and connect with old friends.

  • Connect with colleagues past and present through the Watson Farley & Williams Alumni LinkedIn Group.
  • Receive a newsletter including interviews with fellow alumni plus news and updates from the firm.
  • Stay up to date with WFW news as well as upcoming networking and training events.
  • Receive insights and thought leadership from us based on your areas of interest.
