Invited prospective partners will be introduced to a panel of senior in-house counsel and will have the opportunity to build connections and introduce their practices during the Convention, which is being held for the eleventh year this year. Johnson will be part of the PPP Class of 2022. Read more about the PPP and NAPABA here.
