has launched a veterans placement program aimed at introducing former armed service personnel to new careers in the civilian workforce, reported The Lawyer. The article, “Edwards Wildman Launches Work Scheme for Military Veterans
” noted that Edwards Wildman is among the first to launch such an initiative, which involves sponsoring an internship for a veteran. The program was established in London with the recruitment of a current British Army officer whose active service military career was cut short by an operational injury. A combination of Edwards Wildman partners and administration staff, notably the US-based global director of finance and accounting Bob McGowan and London-based IP partner John Olsen, a former member of the US Air Force reserve, are the driving forces behind the initiative.
