IPBA 2019 Meeting and Conference

The Inter-Pacific Bar Association

The Inter-Pacific Bar Association (IPBA) is an international association of business and commercial lawyers who live in, or have a strong interest, in the Asia-Pacific region. It was established in April 1991 at an inaugural conference held in Tokyo, attended by more than 500 lawyers from the Asia-Pacific region.

The IPBA has over 1,500 members in more than 60 jurisdictions worldwide and a track record of 27 years of successful annual conferences throughout the world. With 23 specialist committees from which to choose, the IPBA has members representing the entire spectrum of business and commercial legal work. The IPBA is a relatively small, close-knit organization which provides networking opportunities, whether in the same area of law across the region or even the world.
