Different laws, different languages, different cultures, different ideas. And yet in the Internet age, consumers and businesses alike demand the ability to access whatever they want, whenever and wherever they want it. Across oceans and continents, business leaders and the attorneys who support them must strive to bridge all borders, tapping into worldwide resources and executing seamless business processes in order to succeed in the global economy.

The IPBA 2008 Annual Conference in Los Angeles will help business attorneys — and through them, their clients — navigate the vast and fluid waters of Asia-Pacific-related business law, turning obstacles into opportunities at the lightning-quick speed of the 21st century.

The Conference will showcase a plenary session and 39 panel sessions sponsored by the 19 IPBA Committees, featuring 225 speakers from over 25 jurisdictions worldwide. Representatives from some of the world’s most respected law firms, including many who have been acknowledged as leaders in their field by Chambers Global, Chambers Asia, Who’s Who Legal, and Legal 500, are serving as moderators and panelists.
