MEETING WITH ECLA AND MADRID BAR'S IN-HOUSE LAWYERS COMMITTEES: LEGAL PROFESSIONAL PRIVILEGE (MADRID)
The Sección de Abogados de Empresa in partnership with ECLA and our esteemed sponsor DLA Piper is preparing a conference on the 22nd of September 2015 on the topic: “Meeting (other) In-house lawyers” .
Among the attendees, Sergio Marini, President of ECLA and General Counsel at Fendi will present ECLA focusing on its role, its targets and its achievements .
The event offers the opportunity to introduce the DLA Piper Handbook on Legal Privilege which is the core argument for the In-house lawyers’ activity in Europe.
In addition, the Chairwoman of the Madrid bar will debate about the situation of the In-house lawyers in Spain and the Sección de Abogados de Empresa will present the ideas proposed by its working group to defend the In-house lawyers’ Legal Privilege.
On 31 March 2017 ECLA had its Annual General Assembly in Rome, where the national association AIGI acted as an excellent host. The agenda of the meeting contained its usual topics, such as the annual accounts, communication, etc. There was also an intensive discussion on the goals, aspirations and future of ECLA, for which the new President Jonathan Marsh earlier made an appeal to the national associations. The outcome of the discussions, which took place in workgroups, will form a solid basis for further discussions later in the year. Stephan Barthe (Spain) was elected as new secretary of the Executive Board. The topic of young lawyers in AIGI was presented by a young member of AIGI, followed by an interesting discussion.
