G’Day, Mates! IBA Litigation Lunch Cruise In Sydney!

Even the hard-working Senior Co-Chair of the IBA’s vibrant Litigation Committee occasionally gets to enjoy some Down (under) Time with some Committee members, who cruised around the Sydney Harbor on a Star Wars-like ship for a Thursday lunch.   KNOETZL partner, Bettina Knoetzl, after organizing and conducting a memorable and packed, global litigation showcase on cultural conflicts found in cross-border cases on the first day of the IBA’s Annual Conference in Sydney, checking in on numerous CLE programs, attending endless planning and executive meetings, and interacting with many of the lawyers who made the journey to Australia from everywhere, got to enjoy the company of  her closest litigation friends — several of whom came to the Land Down Under from as far away as Vienna(!), as they cruised past the glistening Sydney Opera House, dining on the fresh, local bounty of the South Pacific Ocean.  As the video provided by another Committee officer from California and Detroit shows, the day was picture perfect, and a great time was had by all.
