Cross-border reorganizations – Babel Towers? / October 19-21, 2017, Bucharest

Cross-border reorganizations – Babel Towers?


October 19-21, 2017

Between 19-21 October, the International Association of Young Lawyers (AIJA) is organising its first seminar in Bucharest on the topic of Cross border reorganizations, providing a 3600 approach on how a cross border merger/division/recapitalization etc. should take place, from legal point of view.

AIJA today is a global association which has more than 4,000 members and supporters in over 100 different countries. In 2017 only, AIJA has been shortlisted at prestigious Association Awards for Overall Best International Association, Best Conference, Best Association Website and Best Association Conference Development.

Corporate reorganisations are very complex as they involve in-depth knowledge not only of corporate law itself, but also tax law, employment law, regulatory, etc. Cross-border reorganisations are particularly complex as, in addition to the different areas of the law referred to above, take place within a legal framework governed by two or more jurisdictions.

Times were companies were acting on a national level are long gone. Nowadays, companies are acting and organised globally. The result of this globalization is that companies are being (re)organized at a cross-border level.

Corporate reorganisations can take many different forms (e.g. cross-border merger, transfer of corporate seat, transfer or contribution of a branch of activities, etc.) and might take place within the framework of a corporate M&A transaction or within the framework of a purely internal restructuring.

The organizing committee is composed from Moritz MAURER Niederer Kraft & Frey Ltd (SWITZERLAND), Alexandra OLOGU, Sioufas & Colaboratorii (ROMANIA), Ileana GLODEANU, Wolf Theiss Rechtsanwalte GmbH & Co KG (ROMANIA), and Jérôme VERMEYLEN, ALTIUS (BELGIUM).
