TAGLaw Conference - Update16 March 2016
EDG hosted 50 lawyers from across Europe at the TAGLaw European Regional Conference in Belfast on 11 and 12 March 2016. The weekend began with a conference dinner in the Belfast Harbour Commissioners’ Offices, after which some delegates sampled the delights of Belfast’s nightlife. Riddel Hall was the venue for an exciting programme of speakers and lively discussion on topics including the UK referendum on UK membership of the EU. This was followed by a visit to Crumlin Road Gaol. The formal part of the conference ended on Saturday evening with dinner in Malone House. Kevin McVeigh, partner at EDG, said "Being a member of TAGLaw means we can provide an international service to our clients. The European Regional Conference is a significant annual event which strengthens the links between the member firms and we were delighted to host a very successful 2016 Conference.”
