So­lic­i­tors put Euro law on the map

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily -

A GROUP of Euro­pean lawyers have vis­ited lo­cal firm hc so­lic­i­tors for a con­fer­ence of the col­lab­o­ra­tive le­gal or­gan­i­sa­tion Uni­law.

The Uni­law or­gan­i­sa­tion is a group of lawyers from Euro­pean coun­tries who work to­gether to give le­gal ad­vice across bor­ders to clients with in­ter­ests abroad. A found­ing mem­ber of the or­gan­i­sa­tion, hc so­lic­i­tors hosted the an­nual con­fer­ence at its Peter­bor­ough head­quar­ters.

The vis­it­ing so­lic­i­tors in­cluded Ig­na­cio Me­nen­dez and Gillermo Ve­lasco from Madrid, Ge­orges P Mouch­touris and Sev­er­ine Lavie from Lyon, Fed­erico Va­soli and Pa­trizia Masi from Mi­lan and Bar­bara Moner from Barcelona.

Lynne Ayres, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of hc so­lic­i­tors, said: “As a firm we have ben­e­fited greatly from our mem­ber­ship of the or­gan­i­sa­tion. Within the firm, we al­ready have ex­per­tise in Span­ish law and in Euro­pean debt re­cov­ery, but the lawyers in the group have been able to help us as­sist clients with busi­ness and pri­vate in­ter­ests in other Euro­pean coun­tries. As founder mem­bers, we are work­ing with the group on plans to grow and in­clude rep­re­sen­ta­tion from fur­ther afield.”

Glynn Rail­ton, com­mer­cial solici- tor at hc so­lic­i­tors, added: “As a re­sult of our Uni­law mem­ber­ship, I have re­cently acted for clients based in Viet­nam in the set­ting up of a com­pany in Eng­land as part the clients’ longer term Euro­pean strat­egy to pur­chase an Ital­ian fashion brand.”

As part of the con­fer­ence, the group vis­ited Peter­bor­ough Cathe­dral for even­song and a re­cep­tion at the Dean­ery.

cathe­dral visit: The group of lawyers are pic­tured with the dean, The Very Reverend Charles Tay­lor at the end of the even­song ser­vice.
