KLOTINI SERGIS welcomes the European Law Firm colleagues in Riga for the general meeting

On 26-28 September the members of European Law Firm gathered in Riga for the third general meeting of 2018 hosted by KLOTINI SERGIS . The various events of the general meeting brought together not only our colleagues from 24 countries across Europe, but also representatives from The Latvian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Latvia, several embassies and companies.

The conference, being the main event of the general meeting, took place on 28 September, at Riga Graduate School of Law. As the 30th anniversary of the European Law Firm is approaching, participants discussed the ways to develop collaborative projects more effectively, providing legal assistance across the borders. Also, the network’s new directory and the new website of KLOTINI SERGIS were launched.

In addition to the discussions on European Law Firm internal affairs, Ferry Weelen, partner at Holla advocaten, presented comparative aspects of franchising law in various European jurisdictions and raised some ethical aspects of Dutch franchising relations. Whereas Jan van Tilburg introduced the Corporate Tax Alliance – a network of European and International tax specialists – and presented tax implications for the various supply chain distribution models.

Participants also had the opportunity to socialize in several less formal events. Wine & Food Pairing hosted by Aigars Nords and sommelier Raimonds Tomsons in “Bibliotēka No. 1 Restaurant”, received special recognition.

The members of the European Law Firm meet three times a year to discuss matters and strengthen links among its members.The next general meeting will be hosted by SCF Studio Legale in Milan, January 2019.
