About Lawyers Polo:
Lawyers Polo was born in 2008 with the idea of bringing together lawyers, businessmen and polo players. The idea is that an international group of people meet once a year to share their passion in law, business and horses. Lawyers Polo’s previous events were held in Buenos Aires (2008), Madrid (2009), Toronto (2010), Dubai (2011), Paris (2012), Bangkok (2015) and Sotogrande (2016). All of them have been a total success. Today, the Lawyers Polo Association is composed by more than 350 amateur players and lawyers.
