First Law International Board Members met in Brussels on December 22nd to hold the final Board meeting of a very successful FLI year.

The members from UK, Netherlands, and Germany joined Orlando Casares and Pete Larsen (who flew in from Houston) in person while the rest of the team contributed via conference call.

The Board reviewed FLI's progress in 2014, discussed a number of FLI initiatives to be implemented in 2015, and focused on the final draft of the FLI Bylaws, which would be distributed to all FLI NET Partners in the first quarter of 2015.

Following the general session, the Board met with Mr. Jean-Francois Bellis, managing partner of FLI NET Belgium Partner firm, Van Bael & Bellis to review several matters, incl. hosting of FLI NET Spring 2016 conference, client management, and performance evaluation.

The meetings ended with a social cocktail for the festive occasion where several of VBB's partners joined the FLI Board.

FLI Head Office extends a big Thank You to all Board members for their tremendous support throughout the entire year!
