IAG’s Asia Pacific recruitment initiative, which began in 2013, had already resulted in new coverage of 14 countries by 6 members, by 2016. In February 2017 in Mumbai, Pacific Legal Network became members, raising the number of countries in the region covered by IAG to 28. In October 2017 at the New York Assembly, Howse Williams Bowers of Hong Kong became IAG members, a key addition to IAG’s Asia Pacific coverage. Discussions towards further expansion of coverage are continuing. Most recently, the attendance of SNB Law, based in Hamburg, with offices in Shanghai and Ho Chi Minh City, promises IAG coverage in those two important Asian centres shortly.
