2017 Annual Congress of International Lawyers

By Michael R. Jackson, Shareholder

Jackson Law International had the privilege of attending the 2017 Annual Congress of the Asociación Europa de Abogados International Lawyers Network. This organization (“the AEA”) has a strict process for the selection of its membership with the intention of offering to the public legal services that are based upon a uniform quality of standard and unimpeachable ethical standards among its membership. The AEA is recognized as the world’s largest network of international law firms. The AEA was founded in the European Union and, consequently, has strong roots in Europe.  However, in time the organization has expanded on a global basis. The AEA is the only network of attorneys that covers each and every one of the 196 independent countries of the world.  This year the meeting took place in the Czech Republic.  One hundred and seventy (170) attorneys were in attendance for this year’s conference.

Through its membership in this organization, Jackson Law International builds upon its professional relationships with attorneys practicing world-wide in the field of international law. The clients of Jackson Law International can turn to us, knowing that if they require assistance outside of the United States, they can rely upon us for recommendations of attorneys on a world-wise basis. While the Congress consisted of a number of highly informative presentations by its membership, opportunities existed throughout the Congress to discuss legal issues in various countries and even secure helpful information from fellow attorneys regarding ongoing legal matters that touched on legal systems outside of the United States. In 2018, the meeting will be in Palermo, Sicily.
