NYSBA Paris Autumn Seminar
Chambers has a close association with the Chair of the NYSBA International Section, Neil Quartaro (Wilson, Farley and Williams LLP), through David Russell QC.
This prestigious event took place on the Ile de la Cité, next to the Palais de Justice. It was attended by a high calibre group of lawyers from many different jurisdictions.
David and Christophe participated in a panel which discussed the Common Reporting Standard and Automatic Exchange of Information, with particular reference to the wealth industry. This is highly topical across the world at present and its importance is reflected in some of the proposed measures in the Criminal Finances Bill which was published on 13 October 2016.
Michael co-chaired a panel which examined recent anti-corruption legislative developments across the world. The panel was co-chaired by Hon. Fausto Martin De Sanctis, a judge of Brazil Federal Court of Appeals.
OTC’s presence was very well received at this event and it was made clear that our participation in future events would be very welcome. The next major event is in Dublin in Spring 2017.
