Advocates, Tanti-Dougall & Associates have hosted the European Law Group [ELG] Meeting held on 8 -9 November, 2019 in Valletta, Malta.

The agenda for the meeting included issues on GDPR and e-commerce law. As is expected during the ELG Meetings, the participants brought with them a wealth of personal experience from their respective jurisdictions thereon.
