LEXUNION 15th annual conference

LEXUNION 15th annual conference


The Board would like to thank our Lexunion España partners, particularly Lidia Closa and Juan Pedro Hoya from Emin Abogados, for organising the 15th Lexunion Conference which took place from 28 September to 1 October. And a big thank you to the participants and speakers for the calibre of their contributions.

Amidst the electoral uproar, Barcelona welcomed 65 congress goers and 24 accompanying attendees from Germany, Belgium, Spain, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Switzerland, to take part in the work and enjoy the festivities in a unique setting.

Work was focused, once again, on structuring of real estate acquisitions in an international context, given that on this occasion individuals moving abroad were considered. The work, led by Philippe Frésard, highlighted many points that must be addressed before planning such a move and the challenges of planning a relocation.

The report of the Assembly of Delegates held in Barcelona on 30 September 2017 has been included with the documents on the Intranet, as well as the entire album of photos from the Barcelona Conference.
