LAW elected Swiss attorney Marc Grüninger, M.C.J. as chair of the Executive Committee and Australian attorney Leon Loganathan as vice chair to serve two-year terms for the international legal network. The election was held at the 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Bangkok, Thailand on 3 November 2018. As a result of his election to vice chair, the office of treasurer became vacant.

Mr. Grüninger is partner at the law firm of GHR Rechtsanwälte in Zurich, Switzerland. He previously served as the LAW vice chair from 2016 until his election in Bangkok in November. During that time, he served as the network’s recruiting chair, where he assisted in growing the network to its current 101 members. Prior to his service as vice chair, he also served over the years as LAW’s Executive Committee secretary, treasurer and a regional representative for the Europe, Africa & Middle East Region.
Mr. Loganathan is partner at the law firm of Ward Keller in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia. He previously served on the LAW Executive Committee as regional representative for the Asia Pacific Region and, most recently, as the network’s treasurer.
