LAWorld's 16th Annual Conference – Rio de Janeiro 2012


Brazil is South America's most influential country, an economic giant and it has one of the world's fastest growing economies, so it was the perfect destination for LAWorld’s 16th and largest Annual Conference.

Held in Rio de Janeiro in May 2012 and hosted by LAWorld’s Brazilian member firm, Doria Jacobina Rosado e Gondinho Advogados based in Rio de Janeiro and San Paolo, more than 45 delegates attended the 3 day event.

Chris Dixon (LAWorld’s Chair) welcomed delegates to the 2012 Conference. In particular, he welcomed representatives from seven new member firms present who have joined us during the past year (Brussels, Bogota, Budapest, Helsinki, New York, Prague and Texas).  He thanked our hosts for their considerable and invaluable support in organising our global event in their impressive city.

LAWorld annual conferences combine formal business and legal conference sessions with social and cultural events which encourage business networking and getting to know each other opportunities.

A selection of photographic memories of this and other LAWorld events will shortly be available for viewing on the new Gallery Section of the website which is currently being developed.
