TD&A NEWS: European Law Group London Meeting


Dr Michael Tanti-Dougall, Senior Partner and Rebekah Tanti-Dougall, Associate, at Advocates, Tanti-Dougall & Associates have participated at the European Law Group (ELG) Meeting, held in London, between the 14 – 15 November, 2014.

This successful bi-annual ELG Meeting was this time hosted by Penningtons Manches LLP at their prestigious offices in central London.

The agenda for the meeting addressed various matters and 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 legal experience from their respective jurisdictions. Specific presentations were made by distinguished speakers from Penningtons Manches; Rolland Keane, the Marketing and Business Development Director and Mark Collins, the Knowledge Management Director which presentations were well received by the participants.

Also discussed were matters which were deemed of mutual interest for all members as well as the exchange of junior lawyers and business opportunities amongst ELG members.

Sirius Advokater, a Danish Law Firm represented at the meeting by Benjamin Lundstrom, garnered a unanimous vote and was accepted as the newest member of ELG.

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, Denmark and also Malta, having the objective to assist respective clients especially on cross border litigation, commercial, corporate, tax and financial matters, in particular within the European jurisdictions where each and every resident law firm provides its professional services. However, that idea eventually expanded to providing legal assistance 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 Amsterdam, Holland which was hosted by Van Till Advocaten. Forthcoming bi-annual ELG meeting will be held in Malmo, Sweden and will be hosted by Advocatbran Sigeman & Co.
