New York (June 20, 2017) – The International Lawyers Network, a global network of more than 5,000 lawyers, announced today that Simon Ekins of Fladgate LLP in London, England, has been elected Chairman.
Ekins assumes the chairmanship from Peter Altieri, shareholder with Epstein Becker & Green, following an election by the Board of Directors during the Network’s Annual Meeting in Stockholm, Sweden early this month. Altieri has served as ILN Chairman since June 2009, stepping down after eight years of service.
“We are so appreciative of Peter’s efforts and all the work and time he has devoted to the Network as Chairman over these last eight years,” said Alan Griffiths, Executive Director of the International Lawyers Network. “His heart-felt speech at our Annual Conference’s gala dinner was met with a long-standing ovation from all in attendance, which was a true testament to the respect he has garnered during his time in the position.”
