The East Legal Team conference held on 14-16 October 2011 in Barcelona was organized by the Spanish observer of the East Legal Team E.E.I.G Alliance, Dr. Astrid Dorfmeister Law Office in Barcelona, and is the second of the twice a year ELT conferences, held in turn in the countries of origin of each member or observer. This time it was Spain’s turn to host the ELT conference which was attended by the founding members Strătulă Mocanu & Asociații from Bucharest and Balazs & Hollo from Budapest, by member law firms in Poland and Slovakia, the observer law firm from Spain, as well as law firms and top level diplomatic personnel from several European countries.
Identifying methods of improving the cooperation between the members of East Legal Team alliance, agreeing upon ways to unify their practice, as well as discussing the evolution and changes in the economic and legal environment of the member countries were among the topics addressed at the Barcelona conference.
Mr. Cosmin Mocanu, Partner of Strătulă Mocanu & Asociații and Vice-President of East Legal Team E.E.I.G.: “East Legal Team is a interdisciplinary and regional cooperation project, that offers each member and observer law firm the opportunity to constantly expand and enrich its professional expertise. The Barcelona conference on 14-16 October 2011, the first one of its kind to be organized by one of the observer law firms and not by a member of ELT, is a significant step towards the expansion and evolution of East Legal Team and shows the growing interest of West European countries’ law firms for professional cooperation in the South-Eastern Europe”.
