Profession of company lawyers in Europe
IndependenceDuring more than a year ECLA has been in the process of composing a White Paper on the Independence of the company lawyer, containing contributions of well over 50 authors, both from ECLA members and from outside, originating from some 30 countries.
The White Paper named Company Lawyers: Independent by Design has been co-edited by former ECLA President Philippe Coen and Prof. Christophe Roquilly. The White Paper has been officially presented to the ECLA General Assembly held in Tallinn on 30 May 2014.
Thereafter the White Paper has been presented to various ECLA members and other legal organizations, i.a. in Brussels, Paris, Madrid, and The Hague (capital of the Legal World). This will continue in 2015.
Let’s meet today Giovanni Cerutti, in ECLA representing the Italian Association, AIGI (Associazione Italiana Giuristi di Impresa).
