"The sixth Arendt Financial Law Forum takes place in Luxembourg today on Wednesday 27 April, 2016.
This conference is unique in Luxembourg in that it takes place over one full day, features the most renowned international specialists in their domains and provides an opportunity to address various legal aspects of the financial sector in depth, from the point of view of various areas of law.
This year, we will be focusing on a number of challenging issues: 1) wealthy families operating globally require advice in order to structure their assets in a tax compliant manner, 2) UCITS V imposes heavy duties on depositaries and 3) US authorities impose record fines on European companies which often seem ill-prepared when confronted with the US system. Case law provides legal certainty on many issues but not unfrequently creates new challenges for the legal profession, we will analyse the most recent trends in this area.
These key topics will be addressed by expert guest speakers from the banking, fund and asset management sectors at an international level who will share their views with our senior legal experts in financial matters in what is expected to be a lively debate.
These expert guest speakers who come in particular from the United States, Great Britain and Switzerland will take the time to broach each question raised.
This event also represents an opportunity for Arendt & Medernach to renew its continual support for charitable associations by pledging to them the full amount of the registration fees. The Fondation Kriibskrank Kanner and the association Pour un Sourire d’Enfant can count on our renewed support every year.
