Guy A. Rasco Appointed to Chair of LAWorld

Guy A. Rasco (shareholder of Devine Goodman Rasco Watts-FitzGerald & Wells) was elected to Chair of LAWorld at the Annual Conference held in Hong Kong in April 2014.  Steve Ng has stepped down from his role as Chair after completing his two-year term.

Mr. Rasco intends to pursue his predecessors’ focus on business development, membership expansion, improving referral opportunities, and website awareness and visibility. “Our main goal is to increase the attractiveness of LAWorld members in the international legal community; improve networking skills and create better awareness and understanding of the strengths and business opportunities that exist within LAWorld member firms,” said Mr. Rasco.
