IAG General Assembly, May 2015, Rotterdam


International Corporate Partner Stuart Haynes and Head of Dispute Resolution Nick Clarke attended the recent IAG (Integrated Advisory Group (International)) general assembly which took place from 29th to 31st May at the nhow hotel in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

The conference was attended by 61 delegates representing 40 firms from 22 countries. During the conference Salux Advisory from South Korea were ratified as new members and SDZ Schindhelm from Warsaw Poland attended as second time observers.

The conference opened with a reception at the offices of the hosts Ten Holter Noordam Advocaten followed by dinner at the Royal Yacht Club “De Maas”.

Delegates received a presentation on Rotterdam and its port including the local economy and history. The delegates learnt about the types of businesses operating in the area and what opportunities there may be for foreign companies wishing to set up in Netherlands and an outline of how that process works. The host firm, Ten Holter Noordam Advocaten, gave an overview of its activities, and specialist group discussions covering employment law,  litigation and corporate and commercial took place. In the latter there was a seminar and discussion group explaining the process of minority shareholder protection in Netherlands which differs greatly to that in the UK allowing a much simpler and cost effective solution.

As always there were active exchanges of potential work between delegates and informal discussions about issues effecting our own clients in different jurisdictions and the offer of assistance where necessary which we continue to find a huge benefit to our own clients

The meeting saw the sad retirement of the current Chair Nayra Prado Marrero from Spain but all welcomed the new Chair Daden Hunt from United Kingdom.

The next planned meetings are Athens in October 2015 followed by Turino in February 2016 and Berlin in May 2016.

Should you wish to explore what opportunity the Netherlands or any other foreign jurisdiction might have for your business please contact Stuart Haynes on 01743 453687 or email [email protected]
