  • Craig P. Seebald
    Partner - Antitrust

    Among the many attractions V&E held for me was the incredible opportunity to be affiliated with one of the great international law firms with one of the most impressive rosters of clients around the world and with a wonderful, collaborative culture. V&E provides a great platform for us with our deep presence in Asia and other international regions and its strong M&A, IP, and existing antitrust capabilities.

    Partner - FCPA & Global Anti-Corruption
    San Francisco

    After leaving V&E for a few years to live abroad, I was thrilled to be able to return to the firm to help start our San Francisco office. What sets V&E apart in my view is not only does it provide a range of opportunities and the chance to work on highly sophisticated and interesting matters, but there is also a truly distinct culture and dedication to providing its lawyers with the support they need to provide top-level service to our clients.
