To coincide with our annual one-day International Marketplace Conference 2015 on 1 July 2015, foreign lawyers from China, India, Latin America, Central Asia and Africa will be visiting the Law Society. The incoming delegations will be made up of small, medium-sized and some large foreign firms who have some international experience and are keen to build their network and expand their reach in the UK.

This is an excellent opportunity for UK law firms with an interest in these regions to meet their counterparts, potential future business partners and future clients. The delegations want to learn about the UK legal sector and the current business opportunities for foreign lawyers, as well to form partnerships with UK firms.
