2018 International Private Client Forum

Legal Week International Private Client Forum 2018
Annual gathering of leading international private client lawyers from around the world

“Andiamo! Mastering Globalisation”

Legal Week are thrilled to announce the return of the International Private Client Forum.

Together with the dedication of our co-chairs, advisory board and speakers, 2018 is set to be the most fascinating yet as we examine the impact of "Andiamo! Mastering Globalisation" on our clients and our profession. Basil Zirinis of Sullivan & Cromwell will be joined by Clare Maurice of Maurice Turnor Gardner in the chairing seat to once again lead the Forum.

Join the most distinguished private client lawyers from all over the world for three days of panel discussions, roundtables and workshops. The aim of the event is to get to the heart of the pressing issues confronting your clients, now and in the future.

Following the success of last year’s event, you can expect an engaging agenda and plenty of opportunities to network. There will be scope to debate key global issues and return to the office with new insights and strategies for optimising your client service. Once again the conference will be held at the Villa d’Este on Lake Como on 15-17 November.
