Faculty hosts Italian event

27 Feb

The Faculty's Mackenzie Building took on a decidedly Italian feel for an event with the country, its business and its law under scrutiny.

"Doing Business in Scotland and Italy: The Legal Perspective" was the third conference of its kind, following events in Leeds and London, and was arranged by the British Chamber of Commerce for Italy with the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the UK, the Faculty, the Law Society of Scotland, Scottish Development International, finance community.it and legal community.it.

The one and a half day event was described as "an excellent opportunity for firms in Italy and Scotland to get to know each other and understand the respective legal systems and issues facing cross border clients."

Topics of discussion included the Italian and Scottish perspectives on real estate purchasing and leasing property, business taxation, employment law and setting up a business.

Advocates Almira Delibegovic-Broome and Stephen O'Rourke were among the speakers.
