Advisory Board Meeting 2016

2016 Best Lawyers Advisory Board Meeting

The Best Lawyers Advisory Board includes the leaders of many of the most distinguished law firms around the world and general counsel from Fortune 500 and Global 500 corporations. At the first meeting of the Advisory Board in 2012, this network of managing partners found new clients and general counsel met new lawyers whose firms they plan to use in the future.

This year's meeting is generously being hosted at the New York offices of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP. It will focus on the challenges faced by law firm leaders and general counsel in the current economic climate, while providing maximum opportunities to network on an international level.
