The Law Society was the host for the launch of Lex Anglo-Brasil, a bilateral association for lawyers with an interest in strengthening ties between Brazil and the UK.

Over 120 guests attended the event representing UK city and mid-tier firms, barristers, companies doing business in Brazil and the British government.

Speakers included the Law Society president Lucy Scott-Moncrieff, president of Lex Anglo-Brasil Sir David Wootton, Federal OAB representative Lucas Faillace, and Chairman of the Bar Council International Relations Committee Chantal-Aimee Doerries.

Law Society president Lucy Scott-Moncrieff spoke about her visit to Brazil last year leading a delegation of UK firms to promote English legal services in the market. She said “whilst there are challenges for those operating in the market, we know that a great many firms are doing a great deal of work, and the Law Society and initiatives such as Lex Anglo-Brasil are here to facilitate that business”.

Lex Anglo-Brasil is supported by the Law Society and Bar Council, and the launch reception was sponsored by RR Donnelley, Mathys & Squire LLP and Crown Office Chambers.
