This past weekend’s General Assembly Meeting for the ABL was held in downtown DC’s Mayflower Renaissance Hotel. Attorneys from all over the world attend these meetings for the purpose of networking and attaining the latest news and updates on the state of business law on the global landscape.

The Alliance of Business Lawyers was established in 2001 and was converted into an association under Swiss law in 2004. It’s principal purpose is to construct a ‘dynamic’ central hub for attorneys to connect globally. According to the ABL official website,

“The ABL network links lawyers across the world. With over 700 lawyers and 51 offices in 32 countries ABL allows businesses access to creative and entrepreneurial legal advice worldwide.”

The last General Assembly Meeting was held in May 2014, and took place in Moscow. These meetings routinely have appearances from ambassadors, notable heads of state, and authorities in private sector finance from several countries, and this recent November 2014 meeting was no different in that regard.
