Why You Should Attend

This meeting is a great opportunity to meet other Primerus members who work within the Northeast region of the United States, to build stronger relationships, and discuss business development opportunities in a more intimate setting. Primerus firms from the following states have been invited to this meeting: Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Our goal is to have each firm within the region represented at the meeting. You are welcome to bring as many attorneys from your firm as desired, as this event has been intentionally designed to keep costs as low as possible. We encourage you to consider including attorneys from your firm who have not previously had the opportunity to attend Primerus events in the past.
