International Society of Primerus Law Firms

2022 Primerus International Summit


The International Summit is the premier client event for the Primerus Business Law Institute. It has been two years since many of you have gathered in person. This year’s Summit will give you the chance to reconnect with your Primerus Business Law Institute colleagues and work together to demonstrate to an in-house/corporate audience what makes working with Primerus Law Firms so special.

The Summit provides the client audience with high-level, relevant programming aimed at arming them with information to help them excel as leaders in their companies. They also get the chance to meet Primerus lawyers in a relaxed, casual, no-pressure environment where they can seek out lawyers from jurisdictions in which they may soon need assistance. In turn, Primerus lawyers have three days to showcase their legal expertise, demonstrate the personal touch and care in which they provide business guidance, and otherwise meet and develop relationships with corporate decision makers.

Wander in Washington!

Museum of African American History and CultureThe National Museum of African American History and Culture is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture. It was established by Act of Congress in 2003, following decades of efforts to promote and highlight the contributions of African Americans. To date, the Museum has collected more than 36,000 artifacts and nearly 100,000 individuals have become members.

United States Holocaust Memorial MuseumThis tour will allow you to learn about the Holocaust, remember the survivors and victims and confront genocide and antisemitism. This museum was established by an act of Congress that mandated the creation of a “permanent living memorial to the victims of the Holocaust.” It is the items that belonged to those victims and survivors—as well as other materials that relate their stories, experiences, and histories—that form the basis of the Museum’s collections.

Fat Tire Bike TourThis fat tire bike tour provides a different way to see the D.C. monuments. Rain or shine, you will bike for 3 hours using streets, sidewalks and bike lanes for access to monuments. Your guide will give you insights to the monuments and when they were erected.

Segway TourThis tour allows you to see the monuments up close. Your first half an hour will be safety instructions followed by a two and a half hour guided tour around the Mall and the monuments of Washington, D.C.
