Ally Law will host its 2022 Annual General Meeting May 24 through 28 in Zurich, Switzerland. Hosted by member firm Blum and Grob, this is Ally Law’s 32nd AGM and the first in-person global conference since 2019.
Said Paul Franke, president of Ally Law and a partner in Denver-based member firm Moye White, “Our AGM in Zurich marks the first time that Ally Law has held a global conference since our 2019 conference in New Delhi. In the interim, the network has thrived, with new members and many new programs. Our Zurich meeting will now provide a wonderful opportunity for our leadership, delegates and guests to gather together, with an agenda focused on connection and engagement.”
The substantive sessions at the AGM are designed to unite, engage and bond attendees while exploring industry trends, best practices and new client opportunities. Among other highlights, Spiros Margaris, a venture capitalist and futurist in the fintech, cybersecurity, health care and AI sectors, will deliver the keynote address, “Changing the Rules of the Game.”
21 member-led discussion groups will share best practices, regional perspectives and new developments, from client surveys to international tax law. The agenda also includes a global group of managing partners sharing their ideas and experiences on running a competitive, high-performance law firm in a post-pandemic world.
The conference offers many opportunities to explore the history and culture of Zurich, including tours of public art, residential quarters and the famous lake via e-bike, as well as guided walks through the city’s significant cultural, financial, business and architectural landmarks. Further afield, attendees will have the option of rafting below the beautiful Rhine Falls or visiting the stunning Swiss countryside and the historic city of Lucerne. Delegates will further strengthen connections while dining at some of the region’s finest restaurants.
“It all boils down to a simple truth,” concluded Franke. “Relationships are the glue that keeps our network strong and enables us to deliver effective, efficient client service. Our Zurich AGM is a marquee opportunity to build and strengthen these connections.”
