The countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China, commonly referred to as the BRICs are all deemed to be at a similar stage of newly advanced economic development. They encompass over 25% of the world’s land coverage, 40% of the world’s population, and hold a combined GDP (PPP) of $20 trillion. They have also shown immense economic potential and could become among the four most dominant economies by the year 2050.

This potential also bears great opportunities and some challenges for legal services. Our panel of experts will share their experience of practising in the BRICs and the relevance of English law in transactional matters and England and Wales as an attractive disputes resolution centre.

This is a great chance to find out more on options of operating in these markets and tap their potential for your firm.
