Anniversary congress of the German-Spanish Lawyers‘ Association in Schäbisch Gmünd

This year’s annual congress of the German-Spanish Lawyers‘ Association took place from 30 May to 1 June 2024 in Schwäbisch Gmünd, the old Staufer town not far from Stuttgart.

Once again a very successful event with almost 120 participants, and also an anniversary congress to mark the founding of the German-Spanish Lawyers‘ Association in 1984, 40 years ago.

The focus was on topics relating to German-Spanish commercial law, the establishment of companies in Spain and Germany with a cross-border character and criminal liability in M&A transactions and between group companies.

As with many legal issues in German-Spanish law, existing similarities in international corporate law were highlighted, but also different legal rules and differences in practice, which are particularly important in the case of cross-border company formations or acquisitions.

In addition, questions of legal liability when using artificial intelligence and the current trends and concepts of EU legislation on this highly dynamic and increasingly important technology were discussed.

All in all, a very worthwhile event with a culinary and cultural programme in the beautiful and historic Staufer city of Schwäbisch Gmünd.
