Welcome to the IPBA

The Inter-Pacific Bar Association ("IPBA") is an international association of business and commercial lawyers who live in, or otherwise have a strong interest in, the Asia-Pacific Region (sometimes referred to as the "Region"). It was established in April 1991 at an organizing conference held in Tokyo attended by more than 500 lawyers from countries within the Asia-Pacific Region. Since then, it has grown to become a preeminent legal association in this Region, with membership drawn from throughout the world, and currently has over 1,400 members from over 65 national jurisdictions worldwide.
