MIAMI – Oct. 28, 2022 – Nine Greenberg Traurig, LLP speakers will discuss topics such as global anti-corruption issues, private equity in Latin America, international tax trends, and law firm management during the International Bar Association’s (IBA) 2022 Annual Conference, to be held from Oct. 30 to Nov. 4 in Miami Beach. Miami office Co-Managing Shareholder Yosbel A. Ibarra also serves as co-chair of the IBA’s Host Committee.

The IBA Annual Conference attracts about 6,000 attendees and is the leading conference for legal professionals worldwide to meet, share knowledge, build contacts, and develop business, according to the IBA’s website.

“We’re excited to welcome the IBA to Miami, where Greenberg Traurig was founded and where we remain one of the most established and trusted law firms. It’s only fitting that the conference is being held in Miami -- a dynamic legal market that is evolving to respond to the changing business climate of this global destination,” said Ibarra and Jaret L. Davis, the co-managing shareholders of the firm’s Miami office.

The conference will welcome lawyers from over 130 jurisdictions and more than 2,500 law firms and corporations. It will feature more than 200 working sessions and committee sessions discussing topics such as law firm management, international relationships, ethics, the future of the legal profession, and the rule of law.

“As the world becomes increasingly more global, clients want lawyers who understand their business needs and have deep industry knowledge,” said Brian L Duffy, Greenberg Traurig’s chief executive officer. “We are one unified global firm that excels by combining our presence in fast-growth markets like Miami with critical mass in the largest business centers in the United States, Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East.”

As one of the law firms on the IBA Host Committee, Greenberg Traurig also has organized over 20 events to be held throughout the conference.

Greenberg Traurig attorneys and business staff will share their knowledge during program sessions on a variety of topics, from product liability and illegal gambling prosecution to private equity and hotel acquisitions.
