The first Meeting of LAWorld’s young lawyers Initiative LAWorld Next Generation (LNG) was held in Germany this November and hosted by the law firm AC Tischendorf, one of LAWorld’s members for Germany, Frankfurt am Main. The LNG kick-off meeting was great fun and a huge success
Friederike Jawad (AC Tischendorf, Germany) and Stefan Kunz (Bader Gnehm & Partner, Switzerland), LNG’s Organization Committee, greeted more than twenty five young lawyers representing almost twenty member firms.
This very high attendance shows the value and enjoyment LAWorlds (younger) members get from this LAWorld initiative. Even delegates from the USA (Dan Leonardi and Tushar Chikhliker from Nexen Pruet, LLC, Columbia) travelled to Germany for this first meeting.
Sven Tischendorf (AC Tischendorf) and Michael Bader (Bader Gnehm & Partner, Switzerland) warmly welcomed delegates to the conference and gave the younger members an overview and introduction into the LAWorld philosophy and the LNG initiative.
After the welcome part of the meeting each LNG-Delegate had the opportunity to present their law-firms in short presentations. After getting to know each other and the participating law-firms better, Friederike Jawad and Stefan Kunz presented their idea of a possible general setup, structure and organization of LNG.
The LNG kick off meeting combined formal business and general discussion sessions with social and cultural events which encouraged business networking and getting to know each other. The delegates decided on a meeting frequency in parallel to the LAWorld European regional meetings. Hence the LNG delegates are very grateful that RANDA HAVEL LEGAL offered to host the first regular LNG meeting in Prague in February 2014. The delegates decided that there is no need for a LNG Committee, but that Friederike Jawad, Stefan Kunz and Carl Kestens (Marx Van Ranst Vermeersch & Partners, Belgium) will organize the upcoming LNG meetings for the next two years.
