General Counsel's Club
At Jens Drolshammer's initiative, General Counsel of major internationally active Swiss firms meet in The Salon as part of an institutionalized event provided as a commercial service four times a year. The current members include Barabara Senn (Conzetta AG), Karin Anderegg (UBS Investment Bank), Karin Portmann, (Charles Vögele Trading AG), Dr. Christian Wind (Hilti AG), Dr. Hans-Peter Pfirter, Lonza (Alumni), Thomas Anwander (Rieter), Christian Reber (Spectrum Value Management Ltd.) and Dr. Andreas Meier (Institut Straumann). Membership is by invitation. The events start at 4pm and are divided into a business part with a standard agenda and a social part consisting of drinks and dinner. On alternate occasions, an external guest is invited as a specialist to whom questions are put and who will then take part in the dinner.
We work based upon the follwoing standard agenda:
The General Counsels Club is a secure environment in which to discuss very confidential issues. The convention is for each participant to have a right to have the others reply to their questions on critical areas from the perspective of their respective companies. The discussions are therefore confidential and no written or video record of them is kept. In the General Counsel's Club we try to create a special atmosphere where professionalism can be combined with support in a collegiate manner.
At some time in the future the General Counsels Club is planning together with the General Counsels Network to hold and support certain initiatives aimed at raising the profile of the profession of corporate, inhouse and general counsels of Swiss multinational enterpriseslawayers. On request, I will also be holding additional occasions for the General Counsels Club and the General Counsels Network.
