MR DENIS VISKOVICH
I am a dual-qualified Australian and English lawyer with over twenty years of experience working for investment banks and companies in the City of London and Mayfair. I am the former Head of DCM Legal at a large investment bank - where I was involved in multi-million dollar deals in Russia, Kazakstan, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and South Africa. I then became the Managing Director of an advisory company in Mayfair.
Three years ago I left the corporate world and was a visiting lecturer at three university law schools where I taught commercial awareness and risk to law students. At one of the law schools, I developed and taught a commercial awareness and risk module to law students. I also work with the Social Mobility Foundation charity - by providing commercial awareness and risk seminars for some of their law students.
In 2020, I founded the British Inter-University Commercial Awareness Competition - which became the largest commercial awareness competition for law students in the United Kingdom in its inaugural year.
BIUCAC 2021 is exclusively aimed at helping law students from non- Russell Group universities develop and showcase their legal commercial awareness knowledge directly to partners of some of the world's leading law firms and was a great success in 2020.
As a result of the huge demand I received from law students who participated in BIUCAC 2020 and the British Commercial Awareness Scheme (BCAS) to teach them Legal Commercial Awareness, in late 2020 I set up Future City Lawyers. I will provide honest, direct, and interactive teaching to law students who want to develop and improve their Legal Commercial Awareness skills and improve their chances of succeeding at law interviews and assessment centres.
