Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to invite you to the European Lawyers Events’ annual event which is to be held in Rome this year on 02-04 May 2014.

The Rome event will provide attendees with a terrific time to network and socialize in a relaxed setting among the owners of partners and associates of leading global law firms, small and mid-size law firms, in-house counsels of leading corporations in Europe, lawyers working for EU institutions, and young European academia.

In addition to networking and socializing, attendees will have the opportunity to attend a series of panels focusing on European M&A law, the laws governing cross-border investment in the EU with top-notched speakers contribution.

For those who will be joining us for the first time in Rome, the European Lawyers organisation has become a leading European law network with over 10,000 participants worldwide. While a majority of European Lawyers members are lawyers aged between 23-45, we welcome attendees and members of all ages and professional backgrounds. Our events thus offers very dynamic and energetic forum and networking opportunities. During our previous events, we had the pleasure of hosting attendees from all across the globe. We expect to have the high profile lawyers as attendees for the Rome event as well. For further information on the organisation and follow us, we welcome you to join us on social networks.

In order to make the most of the networking possibilities, we encourage event attendees to network with as many lawyers as possible during the event. It is our experience that many business connections have been forged at our prior events.

We therefore strongly recommend that each of you register for the event over the next few days and not miss the golden opportunity to join us. Vibrant history and nightlife of Rome, and naturally sightseeing will also be amongst the schedule.

We look forward to meeting each of you in Rome.

With Best Wishes,

Güvenç Ketenci
European Lawyers Founder
