Graham & Rosen Lawyers Attend Annual TEN Conference in France
Lawyers from our office have recently returned from the 2014 TEN Meeting held in Poitiers, France. Around 60 lawyers from across Europe met to discuss current European legal issues over a two day conference. Next year the annual conference will be held in Antwerp, where a larger meeting is expected.
TEN is a network of European Lawyers of which Graham & Rosen was a founding member in 1992. Whilst TEN was set up by five law firms across Europe, it now boasts members in 13 Member States of the European Union, namely France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Rumania, Denmark and of course England.
TEN provides small and medium sized business with access to expert legal assistance across the European Union. Given the rise in cross border transactions for local businesses, Members of TEN can assist in all aspect of a client's business needs, including contract negotiation and enforcement.
Members of TEN can also assist individuals, for example a property purchase in Spain or preparing a Will in respect of assets in France, helping people avoid the pitfalls and traps of doing business abroad.
TEN has grown on the foundation of longstanding friendships between its lawyers, which means we can refer you to lawyers that they know and trust in the relevant country.
TEN aims to expand moving forward, with a view to having a Member in each of the Member States of the E.U, whilst ensuring that each potential member meets strict rules on quality of service.
TEN is due to launch its new website imminently, which will allow clients to directly contact lawyers across Europe.
