hlw Keeble Hawson hosts European conference with Brexit focus

22nd February 2018

hlw Keeble Hawson has hosted a two-day European conference which put the legal spotlight on maximising collaboration and opportunities post Brexit.

Over thirty representatives from Consulegis, a high-profile international network of independent law firms and professional advisers, flew in from across Europe for the event at the firm's Sheffield offices. Keynote speaker Tamara Harvey, a leading Professor and author of EU Law at the University of Sheffield, presented on the implications of Brexit for the legal services sector along with the legal process for withdrawal. Consulegis members from France, Germany and Switzerland spoke about what Brexit will mean for clients in their jurisdictions and representatives from hlw Keeble Hawson's corporate and private client teams shared how Brexit would impact on their respective specialisms. To ensure delegates enjoyed a real flavour of Yorkshire, meals and refreshments for the event were specially sourced from local suppliers. Paul Trudgill, managing partner of hlw Keeble Hawson, which has been a member of Consulegis since 2014, said: -We are extremely proud to have hosted this prominent delegation of like-minded experts with whom we discussed what the future for legal services across Europe will look like after Brexit. -That will undoubtedly present challenges, but there will also be opportunities for our clients and for us, and our membership of such an influential network will enable us to be well placed to provide our clients and our European counterparts with the best possible advice. With a membership extending across more than 45 countries and 150 cities, Consulegis connects businesses and individuals who are seeking advice, guidance and opportunities across international and cultural boundaries.
