The key note speaker, Judge Ian Forrester QC, spoke on a number of topics including Brexit.

Attendees included clients and potential clients from some 22 different companies, including Amazon, Alpro, bpost, Chemours, Chevron Phillips, Google, Euroclear, GE, Liberty Global, Nestlé, Telenet and Vodafone. There were also European Commission officials and private practitioners in attendance making for a lively discussion.
