First non-american IADC President
CHICAGO – At its Annual Meeting in July, held at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada, the International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC) elected William J. Perry President for the 2011-2012 term.
He is the first non-American lawyer in history to be elected to this prestigious position in the Association. The IADC is an invitation-only professional association for corporate and insurance defense lawyers around the world.
Insurance law is globalizing, and international networks of independent law firms present an attractive alternative to a merger between individual firms.
As insurance globalizes, business and insurance law firms in Europe, Canada and the United States are marrying up, and legal networks are expanding across the Atlantic to provide an attractive alternative for insurance defence firms wishing to retain their local identities.
For a variety of reasons, a number of business and insurance law firm mergers and strategic partnerships have been announced over the past few years.
