I am a lucky guy and I am really conscious about that. On May 9th – 11th, I was invited to the 2012 Jackson Lewis corporate counsel conference in Washington DC. We were welcomed at the very beautiful Fairmont Hotel. I have assisted to very interesting sessions specially concerning religion in the Workplace led by Anton Melton-Meaux (Jackson Lewis Minnesonta Partner) and globalization in employment law practice led by Stephan Swinkels. Partners and members of L & E global were present to Washington to promote the alliance and demonstrate their friendship to the American firm. I am very proud to be part of this growing network composed of people from all over the world. It gives the opportunity to discover people with different background and culture. I think it’s a chance.
On Thursday, after visiting the Martin Luther King memorial, we had a great diner in the beautiful Sequoia restaurant on the top of the Potomac River. On Friday morning, I just took the time to see the White House, the Capitole, the Lincoln and the Second world war memorials’ before taking my flight for going back to NY. Washington is a really nice city but I was missing my “big apple”.
Congratulations to the Jackson Lewis firm for this amazing and impressive event and thank you to Steve Baderian and Bill Manning for, once again, invited me. Only one month left in New York and I hope a lot of things to live…
