History
IPG was founded in 1988 under the name International Practice Group (IPG). In 1992, the Group merged with EULEX and continued under the name EULEX IPG. In order to express our new mission statement and further sustain our current growth of members beyond the EU borders, our association changed its name to International Practice Group again in 2006. In January 2009 IPG merged with Picatrex, an international organization comparable to IPG with members all over Europe. The merger not only provided a growth in numbers, but also covered of additional countries as well as complementary services in countries we were already active in.

Organizational structure
As a non-exclusive multinational association, we currently have over 110 member firms, combining more than 2,500 professionals throughout the world. IPG is managed by a Board of Directors, supported by an Advisory Committee and Ethics Committee. Our Members' Coordinator oversees all member-related operations.  Our members meet at least twice a year during the spring and autumn conferences alternately held in different cities and hosted and organized by members.
