In a Web 2.0 world you can find scores of webinars, whitepapers, ebooks, blogs, and podcasts on just about everything the law has to offer. This is not to say that content such as this has no value. In fact, the prolific nature of firms today is changing the game for lawyers out there. The publishing platform of the web provides a means for any lawyer to make their mark provided they have something great to say (and we all have something great to say). But there is something still special about a live event. Law firms who combine the online offerings to showcase their expertise with real world events can create something very special for clients and potential clients.
Enter the firms of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP and Simmons & Simmons. Having written extensively on these topics online and servicing client needs for years, these two firms are established thought leaders in many areas. This week they offer that something special to clients in the New York metropolitan area.
Special Briefing on U.S. and European Anti-Corruption Regimes
If you run a law department that deals with emerging markets or overseas business, there can be a lot of time spent on trying to keep up-to-date on the latest developments in anti-corruption requirements. Thankfully the experts at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP and Simmons & Simmons have done the legwork already, and they are inviting in-house counsel and others to share in the fruits of their labor (and some strawberry jam too).
This week they will be holding a breakfast briefing to present information on developments in U.S. and European anti-corruption regimes. Here are the details on this live event (registration link at the bottom of the message):
