Butterfield Private Bank logoVirgin Atlantic logoThe International Division is marking its one year anniversary on 25 November with a day and evening devoted to the celebration and development of international legal practice and business. The event is being sponsored by Virgin Atlantic and Butterfield Private Bank.


A one day conference split into two halves.

Morning session:

  • The world in 2009: a plenary discussion on the prospects for doing legal business internationally with input from: Guy de Jonquières, Senior Research Fellow, Chatham House and ex-FT World Trade editor; and Tony Williams of Jomati Consultants.
  • GRIC Panel: input from law firms in the Gulf, Russia, India and China on the market, prospects and developments in their regions

Afternoon session:

We will be holding a selection of interactive workshops focusing on how to develop skills and tools for international legal practice.

  • Are you interested in finding out more about marketing your firm internationally? Or perhaps you are interested in relationship and alliance building across borders? What should you consider when developing an international strategy? How can you manage your talent and keep it engaged?

We will be looking at issues that face all firms and attempting to tackle them collaboratively.

Who should attend?

Business development and marketing managers who are actively engaged in developing an international business strategy. Practice managers and heads of practice streams with a particular international focus who would like to know more about expanding their business internationally. The conference attracts 5 hours of CPD.

Networking and evening entertainment

The evening will begin with two hours of structured networking to facilitate contact building between guests with interests in particular geographical regions and specific practice areas. This will be followed by our International Division party. At last year's party over 500 guests were entertained by Bollywood and Tango dancers as they enjoyed food and drink from around the world and this year promises to be even bigger and better.

Do you want to build up international contacts and network with like-minded individuals with an interest in international legal practice issues? Join us on 25 November for an evening of international music, entertainment and networking and find out what the International Division has planned for next year.
