BINDING CONNECTIONS STRONGER IN ILF BETWEEN HUNGARY AND DENMARK - INTRODUCING HUNGARY IN A NUTSHELL
02 December 2016
International Law Firms (ILF) is an association of independent smaller and mid-sized law firms from all around the world. This organization gives the opportunity to lawyers to build international connections, know other countries’ legal system and culture, thus provide services for international clients more effectively.
This time more than 15 lawyers came from Advokatfirmaet.dk, Aalborg to Hungary to expand their knowledge about Hungary, and our law firm undertook to organize a conference in the topic Hungary in a Nutshell.
Advokatfirmaet.dk primarily deals with business law and commercial law issues. Concerning this, we chose topics fitting in the frames of these fields, including basic facts about Hungarian political and legal system, company law, labour regulations of employing CEOs, real property and taxation.
All the topics were introduced by experienced members of our law firm dealing with the mentioned topics on a daily basis, and we did our best to explain even the difficult parts and legal regulations in a friendly and easily understandable way. Regarding accounting and auditing matters we invited Erika Komáromy as a tax expert to share her experiences.
The conference was successful, our guests were satisfied with the presentation and our guide book. We could have a professional discussion both in the break and afterwards that brought our law firms closer to each other. We believe that this kind of activity develops both the hosts’ both the guests’ knowledge and gives opportunity to improve ourselves in several ways.
