We shared our experience and knowledge in exchange for interesting knowledge concerning the work-related specifics of the corporate lawyers. The training was conducted in the team-building format. This enabled the legal department’s staff to get to know each other better: with respect to writing style, internal team requirements, etc. Especially valuable was the immediate application of the knowledge gained in practice in the form of drafting standards for legal documents and the associated requirements. We had a great and useful experience and enjoyed good company.”
