IR Global News & Updates

22nd October 2022

Hi Rachel,

Did you manage to grab your Barcelona ticket in time? The event has now sold out!

The conference theme for this year will be ‘Shaping the Future’, with a focus on adaptation to this new business landscape.

As normal, our annual conference looks to be our largest of the year, welcoming members from across the globe and hosting our bespoke Rising Stars program for the brightest talents from member firms.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Membership Price Increase

As you're likely to be aware, from 1st January 2023 we will be increasing our membership fees for the first time in 3 years. We took the view during Covid times not to increase fees, as a way of supporting member firms during this difficult period.

However, investment still continued and we added several new services to enhance the membership experience. Re-investment from us has to continue, but it has to be paid for fairly. Our costs have increased substantially in the last 3 years and we have been left with no alternative but to increase membership fees.

However, we will be giving any member that recommends an individual/firm who joins the network a 10% discount off their next membership renewal fee. If you recommend 3+ new members, then this will increase to 15%. This also applies to anyone that adds a new practice area from your own firm.

The discount only applies to your membership and not for any other services or event tickets. It only applies when the new member has paid their fee and has been introduced.

Bangkok - Tickets on Sale!

We look forward to returning to Asia in the next of our series of ‘On the Road’ events with a much-anticipated visit to Bangkok, Thailand in March 2023.

Thailand is one of the emerging powerhouses in Asia and is currently the 8th largest economy in the region, demonstrating consistent growth.

Naturally, the conference will focus on the fantastic inbound and outbound opportunities for members, whilst providing an insight into this fascinating jurisdiction.

As usual, tickets will be limited, so please ensure you book your ticket(s) ASAP to avoid being disappointed, as all IR Global events sell out!

We're looking for any members attending the upcoming IBA event in Miami, between the 30th October and 4th November.

Get in touch with your client manager if you're thinking of attending.

New Publication!

North America may be one of the most attractive regions in the world to do business, but it’s not without complications for those who live, work and establish commercial ventures there.

Comprising the U.S, Canada and Mexico – the first, ninth and fifteenth largest economies in the world – North America continues to stand at the centre of the world’s commercial stage.

With favourable business conditions, international trade agreements and long-standing developed markets, it’s unsurprising that parts of the region continue to top rankings of attractive places to do business.

In our latest publication, you will hear from IR Global members in the US, Mexico and Canada about the important updates and opportunities available in their jurisdictions.
