In June 2014, the Law Society hosted the first Colombia Law Day in association with the British Colombian Chamber of Commerce and the Legal Committee of the Colombian Business Association (ANDI).

We welcomed 10 Colombian law firms to London, who participated in seminars, networking events and business meetings with a range of our members.

After a productive morning of firm to firm meetings taking place at the Law Society, delegates attended a seminar to discuss the opportunities for UK-Colombian trade. A clear message emerged that the potential for exports from UK to Colombia as well as investment is huge.

Look out for our podcast of the session and discussion which will be release shortly.

The three organisations involved in hosting this event, also signed a Memorandum of Understanding in the presence of the Colombian Ambassador, Néstor Osorio Londoño. This will allow greater collaberation between our organisations.
