IAG held its first Assembly of 2019 in Liechtenstein, kindly hosted by Juricon Treuhand Anstalt.
The Assembly heard a series of excellent presentations arranged by the host firm. Rupert Neudorfer of Juricon presented his firm, and briefed delegates on Liechtenstein foundation/ trust and company law. Christoph Gassner of Own Group Ltd, and tax adviser Mathias Langer explained blockchain investment to the Assembly, while Denis Philippe of Philippe & Partners, Brussels and Luxembourg, concentrated on its legal aspects. Andreas Wagner of Fruh & Partner gave an outline of the expected 2019 international market situation. Oneworld Group Ltd, potential members from Cyprus and UAE, were introduced by George Philippides, and existing member presentations were made by Stuart Scott-Goldstone and David Harries of Aaron & Partners, and by Tomasz Szarek of SDZ Legal. Stuart Haynes of Aaron & Partners opened the topic of ‘Technology in the workplace – where is it taking us?’ which will be a focus for discussion at future meetings. Jon Sutcliffe of Morison KSi briefed delegates on developments among our good friends there, and on the continuing relationship. Finally Andreas Jahr of Appelhagen tempted delegates with the programme for IAG’s 30th Anniversary Assembly to be hosted by his firm, Appelhagen& Partner, in Braunschweig, 9-12 May
Two superb social networking evenings, at Juricon’s offices followed by Restaurant Torkel, and at Schloss Brandis, plus an optional day’s skiing and a tour of Vaduz for accompanying guests, completed a packed programme very much enjoyed by all.
