England, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Latvia, Norway, Lithuania, the USA, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Ireland, Hungary, Scotland, Israel, Bulgaria, Italy, Poland, Malesia, Cyprus, Singapore, France, the United Arab Emirates, Rumania, Canada, India and Spain, these are the countries our dear colleague attorneys came from to the annual Assembly of the members of the international organisation Cicero League of International Lawyers, gathering attorneys from all over the world, which for the first time took place in Zagreb and in Croatia.
The Cicero members meet regularly twice a year in order to share business experience at annual assemblies and strengthen mutual relations with the colleagues from around the world.
We are proud that our law firm hosted and organised this three-day event. For all the members present we organised a rich programme of events to present the atmosphere and the beauty of our city.
The first day, we organised a welcome drink for our guests in the vicinity of our office so it was a great opportunity for them to visit our premises as well. The guests then took an interesting interactive night tour of Zagreb called the Secrets of Grič and they learned about the historic and mystic side of Zagreb in an interesting and unusual way.
The traditional Annual Assembly of Cicero took place the next day, and the new Cicero members from Malesia, Singapore, Canada and Cyprus had the opportunity to present themselves. Future development of the organisation and the activities aimed at strengthening mutual cooperation were also discussed.
While the attorneys were focused on their business activity, we made sure to make the stay in Zagreb as interesting as possible for their spouses. We organised a city tour and a gourmet experience through a cooking workshop. The participants also had the opportunity to visit some of the museums in Zagreb. A gala dinner organised for all participants took place in a beautiful setting of the Croatian State Archives where the Croatian specialties from all the regions were served accompanied by traditional songs performed by a Dalmatian klapa (a cappella singing).
The third day was reserved for an optional programme which included a trip to Croatia’s most famous national park the Plitvice lakes.
Here are some impressions shared with us by our guests:
“Thank you and the whole team for organising such a successful meeting in Zagreb. As you said, it was an excellent chance to see how much Cicero members support the work of your firm.”

B.B. , France
„Thank you for the wonderful organisation of the Cicero Annual Assembly in Zagreb which has proven to be a charming and friendly city. The flight scheduled imposed the length of the stay so, unfortunately, we were not able to stay for a gathering on the last day but we do hope to return one day with our families. The programme you organised was diverse and very stimulating from the business but also the social point of view. We established many new connections and strengthened the existing ones.
All in all, the programme was very productive and pleasant. We thank your dedicated team who really ensured for everything to run smoothly.“
