Sunday, 22 September 2013 12:59

Dr Michael Tanti-Dougall, Dr Jacqueline Tanti-Dougall and Rebekah Tanti-Dougall of  Advocates, Tanti-Dougall & Associates have participated at the European Law Group (ELG) Meeting, held in Malta between the 20 - 21  September, 2013.

This successful bi-annual ELG Meeting was this time hosted by Advocates, Tanti-Dougall & Associates at Corinthia Hotel, St. Georges' Bay in St. Julians.

The agenda for the meeting included update on the status of each member law firm, 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 were deemed of mutual interest for all members including how to follow up on clients, the EU Directive 2011/82 on facilitating cross-boarder exchange of information on road safety related traffic offences, as well as 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 Stuttgart, Germany, last April. Forthcoming bi-annual ELG meeting will be held in Amsterdam, Holland and will be hosted by Van Till Advocaten.
