João Valadas Coriel, Managing Partner of VCA, is attending the IBA Mid-Year Leadership Meeting, in Helsinki, from today until May 27.

This is an annual event for all those holding an Officer position within the IBA and João Valadas Coriel is going to be the Secretary-Treasurer of the Senior Lawyers’ Committee until the end of 2024.

IBA – International Bar Association is “the foremost organisation for international legal practitioners, bar associations and law societies. Established in 1947, shortly after the creation of the United Nations, the IBA was born out of the conviction that an organisation made up of the world’s bar associations could contribute to global stability and peace through the administration of justice. In the ensuing 75 years since its creation, the organisation has evolved, from an association comprised exclusively of bar associations and law societies, to one that incorporates individual international lawyers and entire law firms. The present membership is comprised of more than 80,000 individual international lawyers from most of the world’s leading law firms and some 190 bar associations and law societies spanning more than 170 countries”.
