Sydney 24 March 2009: This week from 26-28 March, Clayton Utz will be hosting the 2009 Lex Mundi Asia Pacific Regional Conference – with lawyers from Lex Mundi member firms as well as corporate counsel from around the region coming together to discuss legal practice developments and current issues facing the profession.
Lex Mundi is a global network of 160 independent law firms committed to the provision of quality legal services and superior client service. Clayton Utz is the exclusive Lex Mundi member firm for Australia.
Clayton Utz partner and Lex Mundi board director Simon Truskett said the Lex Mundi Asia Pacific Regional Conference continued to be a valuable forum for members of the legal profession to share knowledge and insights as well as discuss the new challenges they faced in legal practice.
"This year's program is both topical and timely, with panel sessions on how firms and their clients are responding to the global financial crisis and changing regulatory and investment environments, as well as high-level practice area sessions," Mr Truskett said.
"This year more than ever, the conference is an important opportunity for lawyers from around the region to come together and hear how their colleagues are responding to the challenges of the new global economy."
Stuart Clark, Clayton Utz' International Services partner and head of the firm's Litigation and Dispute Resolution practice, said the firm was pleased to welcome its Lex Mundi colleagues to Australia.
"Clayton Utz is proud to be a member of the Lex Mundi network, which is committed to legal and client service excellence. We look forward to joining our colleagues for what promises to be a stimulating and thought-provoking three days."
