Colombian opportunities: Law Society to host first Colombia Law Day
The Law Society of England and Wales has partnered with the British Colombian Chamber of Commerce and the legal services chamber of the Colombian Business Association (ANDI) to host the first Colombia Law Day. It takes place on 25 June.
Law Society vice president Andrew Caplen said:
'Colombia is an exciting market for UK law firms. As the British government has committed to double bilateral trade by 2015, this event will explore trade and investment opportunities with Colombia.
'This is a great opportunity for UK law firms developing their business in Latin America through networking and business intelligence on one of the region's key markets.'
There will be two sessions during the event. The first will be on UK-Colombia investment and trade relations, including how the EU-Colombia free trade agreement has worked in practice. The second session will focus on dispute resolution in Colombia and the UK. There will also be a chance to have one-to-one meetings with Colombia's leading law firms.
