In the spotlight: EU Strategic Talks

Issue 01/2018 shines a light on the future of the European Union. On 4 June 2018, just a few weeks ahead of Austria’s official takeover of the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the Haus der Europäischen Union in the heart of Vienna turned into a think-tank for the Europe of the future. At the premiere of the “EU Strategic Talks” hosted by ourselves and international law firm Amsterdam & Partners LLP, over 220 listeners and numerous journalists were able to watch renowned experts from the fields of politics and commerce discuss pressing questions for the EU: does the increase in nationalism place social cohesion at risk? What needs to be done to fight the crisis clearly facing the EU? And what is going to happen to the Western Balkans states? We have put together a special 12-page section to provide you with the most important answers and findings, personal statements from the conference participants and a selection of photographs. Also, we have some positive internal developments to announce: on 1 January 2018, we expanded our firm’s management by the appointment of Julia Andras as new LGP Managing Partner – more on this on page 23. And as of July 2018, LGP is collaborating with the international alliance of tax and legal advisors: Andersen Global builds on LGP for the expansion in Europe.
