ALFA International’s Premier Global Network of Independent Law Firms has over 150 member firms around the world. Last year ALFA presented Dick Krieg with its highest honor, naming him ALFA Lawyer of the Year.
This week ALFA International Chair J. K. Leonard named Dick to the 2016 ALFA Nominating Committee that will nominate its officers and directors for ALFA.
Dick is the perfect selection for this nominating committee, having previously served as Chair of the ALFA International Client Seminar; he is currently a member of the ALFA Board of Directors and the ALFA North American Membership Committee.
LT congratulates Dick on his continued leadership for ALFA International.
