Trowers & Hamlins Partner Richard Hildebrand named Interlawyer of the Year 2016

Richard Hildebrand, Partner in Trowers & Hamlins' London Corporate department, was named as Interlawyer of the Year 2016, at Interlaw's Annual Global Meeting gala dinner in Tokyo on October 28th.

Richard spearheads Trowers & Hamlins Interlaw membership, and stood out amongst 7,000 of Interlaw's world’s leading lawyers because of the massive contribution he’s made to Interlaw in the past year.

Richard commented on what this means for the firm:

"Being such active members of this premier network of elite global law firms enables us to rapidly assemble multi-jurisdictional legal teams of top ranked firms for cross border matters for our clients as well as referring one off pieces of work to trusted member firms. This is of great benefits to those of our clients who are active overseas."

Richard has been a major participant in the drive to build the Interlaw network and a highly vocal advocate of the unique service it offers to its global clients. He regularly organises and attends Interlaw events, taking an active role and helping to bring EMEA members together across his region.

He has also played a key role in developing Interlaw's Client Development Programme and was instrumental in forging a global collaboration between Interlaw and a global client base across 41 jurisdictions. The model he helped to develop is now being replicated with other global organisations by member firms across the world.

“Richard is defined by his incredible enthusiasm and heroic stamina,” says Interlaw chairman, Michael Siebold. “He's always at the heart of every session with an opinions to share. Despite the amount of work he does, he remains one of the most affable people you could ever meet.”
