An Exclusive Evening with Andrew Liveris AO
Jones Day's Perth Office hosted an exclusive evening with Andrew Liveris AO, former Chairman and CEO of The Dow Chemical Company, on November 13, 2018. During the evening, Mr. Liveris shared his observations on various global geopolitical issues and their likely impact on Australia and the United States. Partner Michael Lishman and Perth Partner-in-Charge Simon Bellas led a wide-ranging Q&A session, which included various questions from the floor.
Mr. Liveris provided insightful observations, in particular about the role of government and the private sector on climate change, the related issue of Australian energy policy, the state of the U.S. economy, and current trade issues such as tariffs and the role of China.
The Firm took this opportunity to welcome Mr. Lishman, who recently joined Jones Day as a partner in Melbourne, and Adam Conway, who will lead the energy transactions practice in Perth.
