On October 16, the Firm’s partners, Andrés Chirgwin and Hernán Peñafiel, as well as the International Associate, Raquel Frattini, attended the Annual Virtual Meeting of Lexwork International, an international network of Law Firms in which we are members since 2014.
Considering the contingent of the Covid-19 pandemic, this was the first time that the meeting was held virtually. With more than 100 attendees, the meeting had the participation of members in breakout rooms sessions to discuss the measures they have adopted in their offices and presentation of success stories in reference between Firms in Europe and North America.
External Speakers are a tradition in the face-to-face meeting, and they were not left out in the virtual version. Attendees had the opportunity to hear from Matt Torrens, COO Sprout IT, and James Beary of CybSafe on Cyber Security – Human Behavioural Awareness.
The meeting had its best moment with the participation of Mary Ng, PC, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade of Canada, who presented measures carried out in the country to reactivate the economy during the Covid-19 pandemic among others practices that the Ministry works for the promotion of international trade in Canada.
With the aim of remembering the social and tourist events of previous years meetings, the attendees were previously invited to enter the Zoom session with a special personal look and the best would receive prizes sent by the association. Raquel Frattini won the award for most elegant and with the best wallpaper, highlighting the cocktails made in each of the events, and Brian Anderson for being the only one who showed up wearing a hat, remembering the tours carried out on Saturday after the work session that was held in each of the countries where the events were held.
