SCG Legal’s Midyear Meeting is back…in person!…and we very much look forward to hosting you May 19 – 20, 2022 in Lisbon, Portugal.

Join your SCG peers for two days of dynamic programming, unparalleled networking opportunities, and invaluable activities focused on increasing referrals, embracing best practices, and devising tactics that will differentiate our network firms from the competition.

SCG Legal is a network of 122 member firms at the forefront of every legal, regulatory, financial, political and commercial issue faced by companies and non-profit organizations globally. Our network has earned global esteem by seamlessly representing many of the world’s leading companies, organizations and startups across more than 60 countries (and every US State), that’s why the agenda for our May 2022 Midyear Meeting is shaping up to provide the information and connections you and your firm need—as a service provider and as a business—to offer clients the support and resources they require to succeed.

From the pandemic to Europe’s largest military conflict since World War II, it seems today’s world is moving from one distressing event to another. Attending this year’s event will be a difference maker as our member community continues to navigate through new challenges impacting the way law firms do business, how we support our colleagues and clients and what new ways are emerging to attract and retain business through referrals and cross-selling opportunities.

Just as we are 100% committed to holding the 2022 Midyear Meeting—in person—at the Altis Grand Hotel in Lisbon in May, we are 100% committed to protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our attendees and staff. We continue to monitor news of the pandemic as well as advice from global health authorities to ensure any and all health and safety measures that can be implemented at the event will be. These measures include but are not limited to requiring everyone attending our event—registered participants and guests—to comply with all local health, safety, and distancing guidelines. IMPORTANT: Everyone attending our event—registered participants and guests—must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before arriving onsite.


The Altis Grand Hotel – where SCG’s 2022 Midyear Meeting is being held – is sold out for sleeping rooms. On recommendation from the Altis, we suggest booking at Eurostars Das Letras, which is right across the street. It is newly remodeled and slightly less expensive than the event hotel. Click here to book.
