ILF REGIONAL CONFERENCE IN VIENNA
30 May 2017
Our followers may know that our Law Firm is the Hungarian member of the International Law Firms (ILF) which is a worldwide association of independent small and mid-sized law firms. This year, the regional conference of the ILF was held in the beautiful city of Vienna. Our Austrian Colleagues organized a professional conference where more than 25 members represented themselves.
First, the participants had the opportunity to introduce their law firms and their specializations. Vienna attracted members not only from European, but also from more distant countries, such as the USA and Hong Kong.
After the short introductions, we heard interesting and useful presentations about the European Inheritance Regulation and about the possibilities of using the blockchain technology for smart contracts.
Our firm was an active participant regarding presentations as Anita made one about the international aspects of the General Data Protection Regulation. As under certain conditions, the GDPR shall apply for non-EU organizations, too, our presentation was hopefully helpful also for our non-European Colleagues.
We think that the conference was a big success which is the merit of the Buder&Herberstein Law Firm, so we thank you for their hospitability and professionalism. We look forward to meet our Colleagues at the next annual conference.
