Dr Michael Tanti-Dougall, Senior Partner at Advocates, Tanti-Dougall & Associates has once again participated at the European Law Group (ELG) Meeting this time round, held in Stuttgart, Germany between the 19 - 20  April, 2013.

This successful bi-annual ELG Meeting was hosted by Gartner Baumann Rechtsanwalte, a leading German law firm, at its prestigious offices.

The agenda for the meeting included update on mergers & acquisitions, taxation, intellectual property rights, e-commerce and employment law. As is expected during the ELG Meetings, 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 the need or otherwise for specialisation during the current times of recession and the exchange of junior lawyers and business opportunities amongst ELG members.

Advocates, Tanti-Dougall & Associates, 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 Paris, France, last October. Forthcoming bi-annual ELG meeting will be held in Malta and will be hosted by Advocates, Tanti-Dougall & Associates.
