We are pleased to announce that our Managing Partner Claudio Visco has been appointed as Secretary General of the IBA (International Bar Association) for the years 2021-2022 jointly with Jamie Carey.

Claudio spent over thirty years with the IBA where he was Chair of the Securities’ Committee, the Capital Markets Forum and the Bar Issues Commission.
“I am honored for this prestigious appointment. In its 74 years history, the IBA has always been the global voice of the legal profession with its strong commitment to the protection of the rule of law, the core values of the legal profession, the development of international law reforms and its constant attention to diversity and inclusion. In the current global pandemic, the legal profession will have a very important role in preserving these values and the IBA is doing a big effort in this respect. I look forward to working with Jaime in achieving these goals”.
Our best wishes to Claudio for his new challenging position!
