The Mackrell International ‘Connect the World Challenge’

The Mackrell International global, legal ‘family’ is coming together in 2021 to do something no legal network has done before – our lawyers from more than 100 law firms are going to ‘connect the world’, or at least, the two furthest points in our network, Vancouver and Auckland, to help look after the world’s children, in a small way, supporting Unicef and our homegrown grown charity Larchfield Children's Home in Tanzania.

Many of us can’t travel very far at the moment, but through a series of sponsored activities – run, bike, walk, bake, knit, paraglide, unicycle, space-hopper, keepie-uppies, singathons, we are going to connect our law firms, amass the many miles between the two points and raise money for charity.

Along the way, we will capture people’s unique stories, photos, videos and connecting efforts - highlighting a ‘connector’ of the week, spotlighting creativity, endurance and endeavour.

We will be highlighting a ‘Connector of the Week’ every week with images and story – so watch this space and make sure you sign up to get your firm mentioned along the way.

Our lawyers already do pro-bono work and our law firms have their own community CSR programmes, but this will show how united, connected and strong we are as a global network, the power of the collective to make a difference. As we always say around MI, we are stronger together.

Chambers & Partners global practice guide, “Medical Cannabis & Cannabinoid Regulation 2021

Cementing Mackrell International’s position as the premier legal network for CBD and Cannabis Law, English member firm, Mackrell.Solicitors has now authored a Chambers & Partners global practice guide, “Medical Cannabis & Cannabinoid Regulation 2021.”
https://practiceguides.chambers.com/practice-guides/medical-cannabis-can...

The Mackrell.Solicitors team of Ricardo Geada, Elliott Rolfe and Nick Earles produced the detailed and insightful Guide on the industry's regulatory authorities, companies’ legal risks, cross-jurisdictional issues, legal elements affecting access to medical cannabis, the use of non-controlled cannabinoids in food and decriminalisation or recreational regulation.

As the Guide states in its opening paragraph: “A practice area that initially attracted more flippant remarks than serious recognition now facilitates a multibillion dollar industry, providing for everything from textiles and biofuel to life-saving medicines.”

Managing Partner, Nigel Rowley says: “[This is] Arguably the most impressive publication in this field that we have put our names to so far – to have our very own Global guide is something very special.”

With a vibrant Cannabis and CBD Practice Group, Mackrell International truly is at the cutting edge of cannabis legal advice for global clients.

Mackrell International Virtual AGM : 10th June 2021

As you know, Mackrell International is a global family – and it’s our business to bring family together and keep you connected.

We may not be able to do that in person for a little while longer, but we will hold another of our ground-breaking, screen-tingling and quite unique Virtual AGMs on Thursday 10th June at 2.30pm UK BST.

We cannot wait to be together in person, hopefully in London in May 2022 – but for now, luxuriate in your own Zoom-suite, show off your fancy coffee cup or cocktail concoction (it will be cocktail hour somewhere in the world!) and come together as a network.

There will be much to experience, discuss, laugh about, enjoy and plan.

We will hear from our leaders, do some mix-and-match, ‘breakout’ networking, say a global ‘hello’, have a quirky, quickfire round from around our regions and meet our newest MI ‘family’ members, who will have no more than 2 minutes to leave an impression.

We will also preview our unique ‘Connect the World Challenge', which will give everyone and every firm across the network the chance both to shine and to make a difference (you’ll have to be there to learn more).

We will also do the official ‘housekeeping’ such as budgets and elections to keep the foundations of the network strong and keep us moving forward.

We’ve done more than ever before as a network, so there have been dozens of new ways to connect and interact – but the Virtual AGM will give you a chance to see and catch up with those friends and ‘family’ you have missed over the last 12 months.

Mark your calendars for Thursday 10th June at 2.30 pm for just over an hour.

Register in advance for this meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZcpcOiqqz8vHdMt9m1fP6ezsjxUavp...

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
