IBA in Rome, Expo Real in Munich
As in every year, October has been busy, as summer recedes into the past and year end deadlines approach, and it also sees two important events in our “business development” calendar, the International Bar Association (IBA) Annual Meeting and Expo Real, the annual gathering of real estate professionals in Munich.
Several partners represented LKT this year at the IBA meeting in Rome. As well as a diary full of meetings with law firms from around the world, a highlight this year was the election of Péter Köves as Chair of the Bar Issues Commission of the IBA. The BIC supports the interest at the IBA’s member organisation developing resources and guidelines for bar associations globally, as well as on occasion becoming involved in specific issues effecting the operation of the legal profession in particular countries. LKT is proud to support the IBA and its activities.
In Munich at Expo Real Attila Ungár, the partner heading our Real Estate team, and several members of his team and John Fenemore from our Banking & Finance practice, were part of the Budapest stand, LKT being the only Hungarian law firm with that position, and met many real estate market participants active in the Budapest market or looking at it.
Both of these events contribute to our strategy of having as many friends as possible around the world!
