General Counsel Member Community

EMPEA’s newest Member community has been created for the general counsels and in-house legal and compliance professionals within our Member Firms. All Members are welcome and there is no limit to participation per organization. This specialized peer-to-peer forum is designed to be an opportunity to share common experiences and lessons-learned in “off the record” conversations and to navigate the global regulatory landscape through a likeminded community where knowledge can be gathered and exchanged.

Similar to our Investor Relations and Marketing Member Community, involvement in the group will include membership in a specialized EMPEA email list to receive the most relevant professional resources and to engage with other Members, as well as to join in-person gatherings and online forums.

To participate the newly launched General Counsels Members Community, contact Ann Marie Plubell at
