Succeeding Virtually - The IR Method: LATAM Virtual Session

A big thank you to those members who participated in IR’s LATAM virtual session two weeks ago. The session featured members from 21 different jurisdictions and focused on the ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) developments and challenges in Latin America, and how they will impact public and private companies in the foreseeable future. A superb turnout!

Do you plan on attending IR’s upcoming event in Washington D.C. on 11-14 May 2022?

Tickets are now very limited and if you plan on attending, we recommend securing your place imminently to avoid missing out.

You can book your ticket by following the booking link here. Or, for further information, please check out our pre-event pack here.

The ‘On the Road’ events really focus on relationship development and providing quality time for attendees to connect and learn about each other’s practices. This conference will be no different and will be a brilliant opportunity for IR members to connect with others who are advising a wide range of clients on their cross-border needs.

For most of you, we understand that the best connections and business partnerships are made in person, so we certainly hope that you will be able to join us!
LATAM Regional Meeting: Sao Paulo (Q4 2022)

Given the success of IR’s previous LATAM meetings in Santiago and Mexico City, we are keen to organize another regional event later this year now that the global situation is improving. We have earmarked Sao Paulo in November or December 2022 for the meeting. We are yet to formalise an exact program for the proposed meeting, however, these events have a large social and fun element to them, typically running over a half or full day with drinks/dinner in the evening.
If you would like to be actively involved in the planning of the meeting and become a part of the host committee, please reach out to Oliver Sillett (
These meetings are extremely valuable and are a great platform for members to meet personally outside of an IR event, collaborate and connect with those from their own jurisdiction/region helping to increase referral activity and business development opportunities.
IR Global is all about connections, so our member hosted events are a great way for you to identify synergies amongst local firms, increasing your exposure and adding value to your clients.
We are seeing more and more of these regional gatherings take place within IR Global, with Scandinavia, Benelux, DACH, and West US all due to take place in the next 6 weeks.

We will be sharing further information about Sao Paulo in due course.

Member Recommendations

Even with the challenges that we've all encountered these past 2 years, IR Global has still continued to see an increase in membership numbers from 1100 to 1250+. Despite this, we are still looking to appoint a number of new firms within Latin America.

Our main challenge is in identifying reputable, mid-sized, and boutique firms, that meet the standards and quality required to be an IR Global member. We also need to ensure that appointed members share the same ethos and values as IR Global.

If you have any recommendations of firms or individuals who you believe can add value to the network by joining us as a member, then please let us know (email and we will contact them (referencing your recommendation). We much prefer to work via recommendation of like minded firms as this drives referral activity.
