It truly is a conference that has the most participants from this area of law. I’m surrounded at ACI by outside counsel and inside counsel at law firms across the country that are doing the same work that I’m doing. And it’s a great opportunity to not only network and meet people that I can work with in the future but more importantly to figure out what’s working for others.”
