posted by Customs & International Trade Law Blog April 26, 2011 0 comments

The International Bar Association’s 2nd Conference of the Americas takes place at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Miami, Florida, May 4-6, 2011. The inaugural Conference of the Americas took place in Mexico City in 2008.   The International Bar Association (IBA) is the largest legal organization in the world.

This Second Conference will again be the perfect opportunity for legal professionals from North America and South America to network, share information, and identify issues, concerns and opportunities across the Americas’ legal markets and jurisdictions.  The Program sessions are focused on 8 areas:

  1. The region in the aftermath of the financial crisis.
  2. Cartel enforcement and leniency programs.
  3. International trade.
  4. Taxation
  5. Dispute resolution.
  6. Energy issues and infrastructure.
  7. Social networking.
  8. General Counsel Forum.

This event is also supported by the International Law Section of the Florida Bar Association.  The Conference Program Co-Chairs are Pierre Bienvenu based in Montreal, Peter Quinter based in Miami, and Claudio Undurraga based in Santiago.  To register for the conference, please do so on-line.  For questions, please contact any of the three people above.

I look forward to seeing you in Miami.
