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.

Younger Lawyers Forum – A LAWorld Initiative

Brilliant young lawyers are the future of your law firm. Within LAWorld, there is a focus by our members on the value of international networking and the benefits of close co-operation with lawyers and friends from other jurisdictions and to bring junior lawyers into the LAWorld family.  

Two European member firms - Bader Gnehm & Partner (Switzerland) and AC Tischendorf (Germany) have devised the “LAWorld Next Generation – A forum for Younger Lawyers”.  Junior lawyers from every LAWorld member firm are invited to the launch meeting at ACT’s office in Frankfurt am Main, Germany on Saturday 2nd November 2013. These younger lawyers will devise their own agenda, meeting schedule and working platform and they will correspond regularly and meet annually.

The objectives are to increase the attractiveness of LAWorld members as future employees of the brightest and best young law recruits; enhance international legal understanding and experience; improve networking and presentational skills and create better awareness and understanding of the strengths and business opportunities that exist within LAWorld member firms.

Two young lawyers are co-ordinating LNG - Friederike Jawad (AC Tischendorf) and Stefan Kunz (Bader Gnehm).  For more information about this project, please email f.jawad@ac-tischendorf.com or kunz@bgpartner.ch
