Agenda

Consistent with our mission to be the source of on-the-go news and legal analysis for lawyers across Central and Eastern Europe, CEE Legal Matters has hosted the regional General Counsel Summit every year since 2015. We introduced our first market-specific General Counsel Summit last year in Budapest, which generated overwhelmingly enthusiastic response from the Hungarian market. This year’s Summit will again consist of presentations and panel discussions on subjects of common interest to senior in-house counsel from the region, and serves as a platform for sharing best practices regarding the retaining and management of external counsel, the creation and oversight of efficient and productive in-house legal departments, and methods for staying abreast of important legislative developments, as well as providing a valuable opportunity for networking with peers.
