Hosted in Budapest’s Marriott Hotel, the three days Annual Conference gathered over fifty leading lawyers from across the globe who discussed cross border hot topics in the legal sector such as the global economic situation as a consequence of inflation, IMF actions and the Ukraine-Russia war, current arbitration law issues, the relationships between law firms and clients, with the presence of three General Counsels of multinational companies, and the importance of mental, social and financial well-being in the workplace, among other topics.
