L&E Global Sponsors ACC Europe Conference 2013

L&E Global is a proud gold sponsor of ACC Europe’s Annual Conference.

This year marks the 20th anniversary for this illustrious conference, which is being held in Barcelona, Spain from 12-14 May.

The focus of the conference this year is how in-house counsels are champions for change. The conference will offer sessions on topics ranging from ‘managing risk in third party relationships’ to ‘pre- and post-acquisition brand management and migration’ among others.

Renowned attorney and L&E Global partner John Sander is a speaker on Tuesday covering the topic:

Thinking globally, acting locally: Ensuring a consistent framework with local enforceability of employment contracts across Europe.

Employment law is perhaps the one area of law where the legal requirements vary considerably. This session will explore areas of commonality while focusing on key areas where local labour law must be specifically addressed, by analyzing the major requirements of any employment contract and the evolving changes in working environments, including teleworking.

At a time when all in-house counsel are challenged to streamline in order to find efficiencies, how can corporations promote the implementation of templates across Europe while balancing requirements for compliance with local laws? This session will bring clarity to the current best practices and will provide concrete recommendations for your daily operations.
