Senior International Attorneys Council

We discuss the legal issues that arise as companies conduct business on a global scale, including issues that reflect the complexities of rapid global change:

  • Recent European sanctions update

  • Changes to restrictions applicable to companies doing business with Russia and Iran

  • Joint ventures in India: challenges and opportunities                     

  • FCPA risks associated with joint ventures and consortia

  • Perspectives on U.S./China trade relations, friction, and WTO challenges

This council is more than a legal education seminar. It is an ongoing forum that welcomes and facilitates intense yet candid conversations among its highly specialized members, who set their own agenda in response to their specific needs.

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted ph2eers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership.

What members say

“The Council of Senior International Attorneys is the only professional group I am regularly involved with. The content is very relevant to issues we are facing currently, and the members are experienced and practical. The presenters include government officials, U.S. and foreign law firm experts, and other consultants. The Council Chair rotates among members, to allow for continued high-level leadership.”
