Dr Michael Tanti-Dougall, Senior Partner at Tanti-Dougall & Associates, Advocates has participated at the European Law Group (ELG) Meeting held in Lisbon, Portugal between the 13 - 14  April, 2012.

This successful bi-annual ELG Meeting was hosted by Caiado Guerreiro & Associates, a leading law firm, at their prestigious offices which are located within the financial district of Lisbon.

The agenda for the meeting included mergers & acquisitions, taxation, intellectual property rights, e-commerce, employment law as well as air passengers rights. The participants brought with them a wealth of personal experience from their respective jurisdictions thereon. Also discussed were matters which are deemed of mutual interest for all members including appraisals and motivating team members at law firms, the exchange of junior lawyers and business opportunities amongst ELG members.

Tanti-Dougall & Associates, Advocates is a full member of the European Law Group (ELG) which was established some twenty (20) years ago in 1983 and whose members are leading law firms in Europe such as United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Belgium, Italy, Holland, Austria, Sweden, Switzerland, Israel and also Malta, having the objective to assist respective clients especially on crossborder litigation, commerical, corporate, tax and financial matters, in particular within the European jurisdictions where each and ever resident law firm provides its professional services. However, that idea eventually expanded to providing legal assitance to clients even beyond Europe in the many jurisdictions around the globe, through a network of law firms in United States, Africa, Central and South America, Australia, Central and Eastern Europe as well as the Middle and the Far East.

Previous bi-annual ELG meeting took place in Budapest, Hungary, last September. Forthcoming bi-annual ELG meeting will be held in Paris, France.
