European Parliament Resolution on Asset Recovery – While working for Ana Gomes MEP, Adam coordinated the drafting and negotiating of a parliamentary resolution titled Asset Recovery to Arab Spring Countries in Transition. This initiative called on European Union member states to take a proactive position in facilitating the tracing and recovery of misappropriated MENA state assets. It called for the creation of and provided funding for a mechanism to assist these transitioning countries. The resolution received cross party support and was adopted in May 2013.

Adam spent more than 170 hours working on these issues including analysing various contracts and reporting on them from a legal and regulatory perspective, drafting advice and correspondence and developing a strong rapport with the client and understanding of their needs.
