September 27, 2022 — Seyfarth announced today the launch of SPAN, the Seyfarth People and Alumni Network.

SPAN brings together current and former Seyfarth attorneys to build and sustain mutually beneficial relationships that span a lifetime. SPAN will provide a number of resources and programs to help Seyfarth alumni stay connected with the firm, current Seyfarth attorneys, and our network of more than 2,000 alumni.

“As we navigate an increasingly competitive market, staying connected with members of the Seyfarth family is more important than ever,” said Pete Miller, chair and managing partner of Seyfarth. “SPAN will allow us to stay in touch and support our alumni at many points in their careers.”

At launch, the network includes a searchable directory, an online community, a job board, perks for alumni who go in-house, and profiles of Seyfarth alumni. In the future, SPAN will drive engagement among former and current attorneys through live events, ongoing communications, and a strategic career development program.

“We are proud of the culture we have built at Seyfarth and equally proud of how our alumni take their experiences with the firm into the marketplace,” said Dawn Orel, chief marketing and business development officer. “SPAN is an extension of our culture, and a destination for alumni who want to maintain their relationship with the firm and their former colleagues, as well as further their career development.

To develop the state-of-the-art online portal, Seyfarth partnered with People Path, a global leading provider of cloud-based platforms designed to engage and manage relationships with current and former employees. The portal will help alumni become brand advocates while helping the firm maintain a high-quality connection with alumni.

“It’s exciting to be a part of a strong firm that generates such positive feelings in alumni,” says Danya Ray, alumni manager. “SPAN will only accelerate the synergistic relationship between our current attorneys and our alumni, who were already sharing opportunities and resources.”
