Sjoerd attended the congress as chair of the Insolvency, Restructuring and Banking Practice Group. This Practice Group held a meeting at the Opern Turm (UBS Bank) during which presentations were given by dr. Uwe Trafkowski (UBS), dr. Albert Sander (Clarefield International) and Robert Wollweber (Wollweber Rechtsanwälte PartmbB).
The presentations were interesting and interactive. Not only the meeting but also the lunch afterwards took place at the 38th floor of the Opern Turm so everybody also enjoyed the magnificent view over Frankfurt.
After this meeting a visit to the European Central Bank was on the programme.
The following day Sjoerd, Koen and Steven joined the meeting of the Eurojuris International Business Group (IBG) . IBG law firms deal principally with provision of legal services involving crossborder relations and transactions. During this meeting dr. Thomas Rinne gave a presentation about ‘Brexit and beyond – the perspective from the continent’.
After this presentation various IBG members shared their views on current legal topics and other interesting issues in their home countries.
The congress ended by a plenary session during which Nick Marson, author of Leading by Coaching gave a presentation about the person-centred law firm.
Just like all other participants to the congress Sjoerd, Koen and Steven look forward to the next one.
