Delegates from law firms around the world will descend on London for the World Services Group 10th Annual Conference, in September.

And Shoosmiths - the only WSG member for England and Wales - is playing host.

Gary Assim, the partner coordinating the event, said: "This is a superb opportunity for us to showcase our capabilities in front of a global audience, and to forge new relationships.

"Lawyers and other professional services providers are coming from across the globe - including from economic powerhouses China, India and Brazil - and we're eager to put on a good show."

Venues include Tower Bridge and Tate Britain; while keynote speaker will be Professor Richard Susskind OBE, author and independent adviser to major professional firms and national governments. He will speak on The Future of Professional Services.

Assim added: "As hosts, we want to get across to delegates and others who will attend the event, the essence of Shoosmiths. To help us do that, we will be involving people at all levels from across the firm.

"With the express backing of all partners, we want this to be an expression of confidence in Shoosmiths' future."
