These fantastic international law firms, along with our global accounting and business advisory firms enables IAPA to realise a new recruitment initiative that will allow us to deliver a more holistic business advisory service to its members and their clients. We are very excited about this new strategic direction and are confident that this will increase business opportunities within IAPA and allow firms to meet their clients’ needs more efficiently and effectively, which is ultimately what IAPA is all about.”
