The annual event brings together in-house counsel, local leaders, and attorneys
from across the St. Louis region.
St. Louis (June 7, 2022) – The Association of Corporate Counsel, St. Louis Chapter (ACC STL), the pre-eminent professional development organization serving in-house counsel, in partnership with the Bar Association of Missouri St. Louis (BAMSL), the largest legal member association in St. Louis, hosted the May 11 Corporate Counsel Institute (CCI) at the Ritz-Carlton.
Two hundred and forty attendees participated in the annual event, which brings together in-house counsel, local leaders, and attorneys for a day of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) and networking. The (CLE) presentations were given by the sponsoring firms and covered topics, ranging from labor and employment matters, to litigation, to diversity and inclusion, and the evolving practice of navigating privacy laws.
Ty Ulmer, ACC STL 2022 CCI Chairperson, said, “The CCI would not be possible without the generous support of all the sponsoring law firms and legal industry exhibitors – all of whom gave generously of their time and resources to make the event possible. A special thank you also to the Bar Association of Metropolitan Saint Louis and its staff, who are our partners in the event. Together our organizations can put together an event of greater depth and breadth than either organization could do on its own.”
The 2022 CCI corporate sponsors include:
- Husch Blackwell, lunch sponsor and 2022 ACC STL Gold Level Sponsor
- Thompson Coburn LLP, cocktail reception sponsor and 2022 ACC STL Gold Level Sponsor
