Earlier this month, CLCA member firms convened in London for our annual get-together. We had an convivial dinner at the Aqua Shard with amazing views of the City, and got down to business the next day at an exclusive meeting room in Fleet Street.
First on the agenda was an exchange of news, trends and best practice litigation PR ideas in each of our markets. Next we had a demonstration from our Austrian member firm SMJ about their impressive intelligence gathering tool available to all CLCA clients. It deep-mines the internet and social media for information about a matter, company or individual and processes patterns of interconnectedness.
And lastly we discussed future plans for the CLCA including the countries of priority for expansion (France; Ireland; Abu Dhabi; Israel and Australia) as well as our business development and marketing pledges.
All in all it was great to meet everyone in person and renew our commitment to the CLCA and to discuss professional as well as World Cup prospects!
Next year Vienna?!
