Triple seminar: Flex Work, International Litigation and Assets Transactions

Lille

13 - 15 October 2016


Only 80 minutes from London, 1 hour from Paris and 35 minutes from Brussels, Lille is a unique mixture of Flemish traditions and French “art de vivre”. Lille has an exceptional architectural heritage. The city displays traces of its historical (The Citadel designed by Vauban) and industrial (Gare Saint Sauveur, Euratechnologies) pedigree, interspersed with glimpses of its future. As the European Capital of Culture in 2004, Lille is now a cultural hot-spot, with its 15 museums, including the magnificent Palais des Beaux-Arts, the largest museum in France after the Louvre. It will also host, in October 2016, the first triple seminar ever organized by AIJA, with 3 high quality scientific programs:

  • The Employment commission invites you to a 1,5 day seminar to discuss and study global variations on traditional employment relationship models (with a focus on the Uber shared economy « employment » model), to try to answer this question: How flexible is flex work?
  • The Litigation and Commercial Fraud seminar will focus on the key issues that international litigators face today. The program features key note speakers from the English Commercial Court, the Hague Conference on Private International Law, 3 Verulam Buildings and Grant Thornton. As well as tackling the complex legal issues thrown up by cross-border disputes, the program will include practical tips from seasoned litigators and a forum for everyone attending to hold lively and interactive discussions.
  • The M&A Academy will try to explore Asset Sale Transactions: the other side of the moon from various angles and focus not only on corporate-legal aspects, but also on related aspects such as employment, real estate, IP, tax, etc. The ‘grand finale’ of the seminar will be a large interactive group discussion on do’s and don’ts in international asset sale transactions.
