What is ACC Europe about?
The European Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel aspires to be the number one peer community for all in-house counsel in Europe. 

Why should I become a member of ACC Europe?
By joining ACC Europe, you enter a large community of in-house counsel in Europe, and take part in an open exchange with more than 3,300 in-house legal professionals.

As part of this exchange, you can both learn from and teach your colleagues who face similar challenges in their capacity of corporate counsel. This prevents you from becoming isolated in your day-to-day work.

In addition to being a member of an extensive in-house network, you gain access to a number of helpful tools and opportunities to fulfill continuous legal education requirements.

ACC Europe’s main event is the Annual Conference, which is the traditional highpoint in many European in-house counsels’ calendar.

The Annual Conference combines sharing of experiences, education, networking and having a good time. You also get the opportunity to attend a number of relevant local seminars organized by the country representatives in each member country.

Through ACC Europe, you can make your voice heard within the in-house legal community and beyond.

Our members are empowered to share their “war stories”, their always interesting, and sometimes funny or frustrating experiences in embracing the challenges that are part of their role as corporate counsel.

We share our experiences in an atmosphere of professionalism, sincerity and friendship.

ACC Europe has also been lobbying for a number of years on issues that are relevant to in-house counsel, such as the in-house counsel privilege in a number of European countries.

ACC Europe continues to lobby, or cooperate with, other bodies or authorities, whenever occasions arise in Europe to help enhance the position of in-house counsel.
