“ALFA International seminars are one-of-a-kind experiences. As someone who is still somewhat new to the Transportation Practice Group, I appreciate how welcoming and warm everyone has been. ALFAI feels like family. The wealth of knowledge I have gained from other attorneys to the perspective and suggested best practices from the clients who are true leaders in the industry is invaluable.”

"As with other ALFAI events I have attended, the 2023 L&E Seminar was a unique opportunity to learn about and discuss key employment law issues with in-house and outside counsels from countless domestic and global jurisdictions. No other group brings together such a global and diverse group of experienced attorneys focused on assisting businesses across every state and around the world."
