New York, NY – Oct. 3, 2017— ALM today announced the acquisition of Global Leaders in Law (GLL), the leading global General Counsel forum.

GLL is an invitation-only membership group, offering General Counsel a global platform for virtual and in-person collaboration to exchange ideas, receive advice and guidance from peers and participate in an advanced leadership skills development program for General Counsel. Over the last ten years, GLL has gained the reputation as ‘the home of thought leadership for General Counsel’.

ALM will combine the core offerings of GLL with its existing media, intelligence and events portfolio to deliver a combined suite of resources to support global General Counsel and their teams.

ALM connects GLL members to a number of General Counsel specific programs, including editorial content and analytical coverage of cutting-edge developments across ALM’s 20 legal media brands. Members will receive access to a suite of dedicated tools and research to benchmark against peers through ALM Intelligence.

“General Counsel have always been valued clients of ALM,” said Bill Carter, CEO at ALM. “The addition of the elite GLL General Counsel group to our portfolio enables us to deliver the highest quality products to leading global General Counsel and their teams.”

Meena Heath, the founder of Global Leaders in Law, will continue as the President of Global Leaders in Law, leading the integration of enhanced ALM General Counsel capabilities to augment the original GLL offering.

“Global Leaders in Law has been built with the dedication and support of the world’s leading General Counsel, law firms and providers of services to the legal community,” said Meena Heath, President, Global Leaders in Law. “I would like to thank all of them for helping us to create this astonishing group of talented leaders and I am looking forward to working with ALM, to broaden the global offering of resources for GLL members.”
