Location: Tarrytown House Estate & Conference Center Tarrytown, New York
Themes(s): Focusing on the strategy for advancing the Firm’s U.S. and global aspirations
The Firm held its first global partner meeting in 1984. By that time, White & Case had three offices in the United States (New York, Washington, D.C. and Palm Beach), six outside the United States (Paris, Brussels, London, Hong Kong, Singapore and Stockholm) and lawyers working in Jakarta at offices at Bank Indonesia. Jim Hurlock decided to convene a meeting of all partners to discuss the Firm’s strategy for advancing both its U.S. and global aspirations. Since that first meeting, the Firm has held a global partner meeting every other year, with three exceptions. In the gap between the 1984 and 1989 meetings, the Firm celebrated its 85th anniversary in 1986 with a boat ride on the East River in New York City and similar events in other offices. In the gap between the 1999 and 2003 meetings, the Firm held a global partner meeting in New York City on June 2-3, 2000 at the Firm’s office and at CitiCorp Auditorium in conjunction with a dinner on June 3 at the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at the New York Botanical Garden in honor of Jim and Lyn Hurlock, commemorating Jim’s 20 years as head of the Firm; and it celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2001 at many of its offices, including a party in New York City at Christie’s. In 2008, the Firm sheld a one-day global partner meeting in New York City in conjunction with a dinner at Cipriani on 42nd Street in honor of Duane and Myrle Wall, commemorating Duane’s seven-plus years as head of the Firm. Many other meetings and celebratory events are held at the Firm each year at the office and regional level and are also held by the Firm’s practice, industry and interest groups, but the Firm believes the global partner meetings are essential to maintaining and nurturing the collegial and collaborative relationship among partners around the world that enables the Firm to pursue its global aspirations so effectively.
