The theme for this year’s event is “Don’t wait for it to happen: make it happen! -- in-house counsel as champions for change.” Over the past 20 years, ACC Europe’s annual conference has provided a central focal point of ACC Europe’s activities. Since its inception, more than 7,000 delegates representing high-profile multinational companies have attended the annual conference to discuss and debate issues of supreme importance to in-house counsel.

The conference will provide a myriad of session formats to include two plenary sessions, interactive roundtables, detailed case-study workshops and more. Topics to be addressed are Legal and Compliance: Two Worlds or Two Faces of the Same Coin; Managing Risk in Third-Party Relationships; Cultural and Legal Issues in Europe’s Eastern Frontier Into Asia; Thinking Globally and Acting Locally; and the General Counsel Mandate: The General Counsel as Strategic Thinker.
