DRI International’s mission is to develop a global network of lawyers focused on the international and multi-national aspects of the practice of law. More and more often, it is obvious to companies who operate internationally and to their counsel that decisions made and actions taken in one part of the world significantly impact available choices and results elsewhere. It is incumbent upon those companies and the ever increasing group of lawyers who serve such clients’ increasing needs to understand the implications of the internationalization of law and to have knowledgeable lawyers available to them to provide insight and guidance. DRI International provides a forum to bring together international clients and in-house and outside counsel who represent them, as well as U.S. multi-national companies and their inside and outside counsel.
