The Colombia Law and Business Forum – October 14

September 25, 2010
There are a limited number of seats available for this in-depth, high-level conference reviewing major law and business issues in Colombia today. Two legal panels will join the audience in reviewing and addressing the presentations of numerous major business and investment leaders. By taking a close look at the business issues through a legal lens, I, the conference chair, hope to lower barriers, increase understanding, improve connections, and enhance the investment environment.
