Dear friends, sponsors, speakers & in-house colleagues,
You are invited to the beautiful city of Madrid to embrace New Beginnings from an inspiring perspective with ACC Europe.

While we continue to live in unprecedented times, life goes on and has gone on in a rapidly changing world.  Since our triumphant 25th annual conference in Edinburgh in 2019 with over 450 conference attendees, we have all been called upon to dig deep and overcome personal and professional challenges. Now it’s time to look forward, celebrate New Beginnings, and be inspired by fresh perspectives for the in-house legal community.  There’s no better venue to host this exciting conference than Madrid, Spain’s vibrant capital, with its rich culture, delicious food and inspiring architecture.

With every challenge comes opportunity, and the profile and expectations of the in-house community lawyer has changed irrevocably over the past 2 years. Now more than ever, the time is ripe for in-house counsel to jump in, participate and share, learn from peers and subject matter experts and embrace and prepare for New Beginnings. Be part of a growing community of almost 4,000 in-house legal professionals across Europe creating, collaborating, and connecting to inspire fresh perspectives on topics including ESG, outstanding leadership challenges, DE & I, risk management, counsel in a crisis, variance in global anti-trust regimes, legal operations and much, much more.

Learn, explore and embrace these New Beginnings and be inspired by renewed perspectives for the in-house community for 2022 and beyond.

Join us in Madrid, we look forward to seeing you there!

P.S. Recognising that we live in an ever-changing world, please be assured that we will make every effort to accommodate the Covid-19 guidelines prevailing at the time of the conference. Further, in the hopefully unlikely event that you need to cancel your registration, you will see that we are offering very generous cancellation provisions.

“Having the chance to share our realities with several in-house counsels from other different countries allow me, individually and as head of a team, to have a 360 degrees’ view of what is happening in the legal world around us. I acknowledge that ACC Europe meetings are the perfect opportunity to spread our network, keep in touch with our colleagues and be usefully updated by the progresses of this community.”

Juan Carlos Alfonso, General Counsel – AENA
