Update on Doing Business in Germany

, Gerhard Manz and Sven Ufe Tjarks, Friedrich Graf von Westphalen
Kegler Brown

You’re invited to join Kegler Brown and our friends from the German law firm Friedrich Graf von Westphalen on September 11, 2017 for a discussion on doing business in Germany with an update on current events in Europe and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), expected in the spring of 2018.

Join us for a happy hour and meet Gerhard Manz and Sven Ufe Tjarks of Friedrich Graf von Westphalen. Then, stay as they present on recent issues concerning doing business in Europe, including importing to/exporting from Germany and recent developments in neighboring countries, such as France’s new president and Brexit. They will also review the upcoming federal elections in Germany, to be held less than two weeks after this event, and will discuss the parties’ programs and significant legislation that will decide the future of current chancellor Angela Merkel and Germany’s role within the EU and worldwide.

Kegler Brown’s Privacy + Data Security practice chairs, David Wilson and Victoria Beckman, will also join the presenters to discuss international perspectives on data security and enforcement of the GDPR in the U.S.


Please RSVP by Monday, September 4, by contacting Korri Titus at [email protected] or (614) 255-5515.
