Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) June 06, 2014
Legal Netlink Alliance, an international association of law firms, recently held its Spring General Meeting at the Standard Club in Chicago, Illinois. The event was hosted by Windy City law firm Aronberg Goldgehn, and was attended by more than 40 member firms.
Attendees and their guests enjoyed dinner on Thursday evening at one of the city’s great restaurants, Osteria Via Stato.
The general session on Friday was kicked-off with an enthusiastic panel discussion on law firm partnerships, followed by an informative presentation by Melissa A. Smart, Litigation Group Manager and Senior Counsel at the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois. Her session was titled “Lawyer Disciplinary Agencies: Structure, Operation and Practical Experiences.”
Jeffery L. Hartman, a Partner at 4 Discovery, started the afternoon segment with practical advice in a presentation titled, “Electronic Information: How to Gather, Discover and Use in Litigation and Corporate Matters.” All the sessions were very well received by attendees, and were the topic of conversation at Friday’s dinner at Joe’s Seafood Prime Steak & Stone Crab.
Jay Frank, President of LNA USA, provided insight on the importance of regularly bringing members together. “Our meetings always give attendees great information to take back to their law firms and practices,” said Frank. “They also enhance the friendships and professional relationships our members have with one another, a characteristic that truly defines what LNA is all about.”
Legal Netlink’s next major events are the European Summer Meeting in Milan, Italy on June 27th and 28th, and the Fall Meeting in Dallas, TX October 15th through 17th.
