On September 10, 2018, the Association for Networking and Promoting Young Lawyers in Munich e.V. (JMWA) came to the GSK Stockmann offices in Munich to hear Dr. Theo Waigel, former Federal Minister of Finance and GSK Of Counsel, talk about trust and politics.

Around 70 guests – all young lawyers from corporate law firms in Munich – attended the event.
After GSK Partner Dr. Markus Escher delivered his welcoming remarks on behalf of the hosts, the expectant participants were treated to a lively and very entertaining talk by Dr. Waigel. In these turbulent times, he emphasized the importance of making decisions together and based on trust. According to him, this is not only true for politics but also for the daily work young lawyers do. Without mutual trust, he said, there is no basis for constructive cooperation between young lawyers and experienced partners as well as clients. Dr. Waigel used vivid examples to talk about his own experience as Finance Minister and showed how trustful relations had contributed to major successful decisions.

After a questions-and-answer session with the audience, the guests were invited mingle and network while drinks and snacks were served butler-style.
