Our first meeting in 2015 was held and organised in London by Gordons Partnership LLP.
We had the pleasure to hear a discourse on “Buying property in UK” by Mr Mike Slade. The matter of buying real estate in different countries will soon be given attention on the website as well, so Mr Slade’s talk was of great interest to all of us. Later on, the topic was even complemented by a lecture on taxation aspects of property purchases in UK, given by Mr McMullen from Smith and Williamson accountants.
The third topic we had the pleasure to hear an expert’s opinion on was “The European legal market: a banker’s perspective”, a discourse by Chris Bolton from Barclays Bank.

This year’s second meeting was held in Barcelona, organised by Raich Lopez & Diez lawyers and chaired by Ms Pauline Le More. The topics discussed were of mostly general nature, as we needed to agree on some changes in the organisation of our network. New ways to improve the ULN-website, as well as potential members, were agreed on.
We also had the pleasure to welcome Mr Shevtsov from Moscow, Russia, who kindly presented his Law firm EMPP and areas of practice. Since all of the ULN members, as well as the partners of his law firm, agreed, he will be admitted into ULN as of the end of 2014.
Later on we all had the pleasure to attend a Conference of the General Director of Industry of the Government of Catalonia about the purchase of companies in bankruptcy, which was very interesting and informative to all of us.

Effective as of the 1st of May 2014, his membership will change from a single to a law firm one. The second partner representing the firm will be Andreas J. Tryba, whom he introduced to us as well.
This meeting’s program included interactive discussion and seminars at the European Commission, about our central working themes ‘The Role of the European Commission and the EU decision-making Process’ and ‘Eurocrisis and the Future: Political and strategic Coordination’.
