COMBAR North American Meeting 2015
This year the meeting took place in Washington DC from 9-10 April. This event was the most well attended meeting to date with over 80 delegates. There were a good range of subjects most of which were of broad application to commercial practitioners and it was useful to see US, UK and Canadian approaches. The debates were both entertaining and illuminating, and much more vocal than in previous years. As one delegate commented afterwards ‘We enjoyed it tremendously as a family – the best ever. The receptions were top rate and the dinner [in the Supreme Court] was an absolute treat. What a privilege to have such an extraordinary location. I made more good contacts. More of the same please!'
