Record numbers at European Members Meeting in Stockholm

LAWorld’s European autumn weekend meeting was held in the elegant city of Stockholm with thirty three delegates – the highest numbers at a Regional Meeting and the second regional European gathering of 2013. Our host, LAWorld member for Stockholm, Gärde & Partners, welcomed all delegates.

As our global network expands and our members appreciate the benefits of international co-operation, so our regional meetings continue to attract record numbers.

Lawyers from across Europe discussed a wide range of topics which included doing business together, how IT impacts your law firm, increasing traffic to your firm’s website, marketing and improving referral opportunities. Two new members gave presentations about their firm - Malata, Pružinský, Hegedüš & Partners, Bratislava, Slovak Republic and Vidan Attorneys, Zagreb, Croatia. A report on LAWorld’s Next Generation – a younger lawyers initiative was given by Friederike Jawad, Frankfurt am Main and Stefan Kunz, Bern.

Steve Ng, LAWorld’s Chair and member for Hong Kong was present and he explained that work is beginning to flow out of China giving work to some LAWorld members, mainly in South America, but there are many opportunities world-wide.

A photo-gallery of the event is now available and for more information on the LAWorld events please contact the Executive Office on mail@laworld.com
