Arnie and Susan Lutzker Attend INBLF Summit in Sydney

Susan and I have just returned from a productive and wonderful trip to Australia. The purpose of our trip was to attend the Asian summit of the International Network of Boutique Law Firms (INBLF), of which I am a Board member as well as national treasurer and president of the DC Chapter. In addition to the formal program, which featured a presentation by a representative of the Australian Trade Commission as well as a focus on international membership development, there were many opportunities for informal networking, at Toronga Park Zoo, in Utzon’s iconic Opera House and in other magnificent settings overlooking the harbor. Along the way we fell in love with Aboriginal art and spent time in Sydney galleries. As with past INBLF meetings, we treasured this time with our colleagues, both with those we know well and with newcomers to the group. From Sydney we did a brief jaunt to Kangaroo Island for some up front and personal time with flora and fauna (including kangaroos and koalas) unique to the continent and then, in the good company of Charley Kagay (INBLF president) and his wife Teresa, to the Barossa Valley to taste some fantastic Australian wines.
