2018 Distinguished Alumni Perspectives Featuring Clarence Nesbitt

Our inclusion network BLAQUE (Black Lawyers Aligned in the Quest for Excellence) and Shearman Alumni hosted a Distinguished Alumni Perspectives program featuring Clarence Nesbitt on June 13 in New York. The event brought together nearly 100 current and former Shearman & Sterling colleagues for an enlightening presentation.

Clarence knows a thing or two about career success. Serving in several roles of increasing complexity and importance, Clarence has crafted a successful career trajectory from his time at Shearman & Sterling to his long history at Nike. Now as General Counsel and Secretary of the Board of Directors for THINK450, the Innovation Engine of the National Basketball Players Association, he came to the New York office to share his personal and professional insights. Watch highlights from the event.



This event is a part of an annual series and highlights the amazing work of Shearman alumni like Clarence, distinguished professionals in the legal and business communities who make significant contributions while at the firm and then go on to achieve great things elsewhere. Our alumni are important to us, and we appreciate the opportunity to stay in touch.
