Paul Marmor, head of Sherrards’ International Services, recently attended the International Bar Association’s annual conference in Sydney, and had the opportunity to meet former Australian Prime Minister, John Howard (who served from 1996 to 2007). He is Australia’s second longest-serving Prime Minister, and is something of a legend in Australia.
It is quite clear that Australia is embedded in its culture to the rule of law, and is a great place to do business, being ranked number 15 out of 190 countries by the World Bank in its annual tables analysing the ease of doing business around the world.
John Howard is considered to be one of the architects of Australian stability, and Paul was able to meet him through the IBA. Paul holds a position on the leadership of the IBA’s Law Firm Management Committee, being the co-Outreach and Education Officer.
The IBA itself has a membership of more than 80,000 individual lawyers and more than 190 bar associations in over 160 countries. It has considerable expertise in providing assistance to the global legal community.
Sherrards’ connectivity to the IBA, alongside our membership of the Alliott Group Worldwide Alliance of Law and Accountancy Firms, means that we are able to call upon our professional colleagues across the globe when international support is needed.
If you would like more information about the IBA or the Alliott Group, or you would like to subscribe to the IBA Law Firm Management Committee’s webinar series, please contact Paul Marmor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
