Hull McGuire Participates In Two Conferences Of IBLC

Pittsburgh/Washington, D.C., 4/5/2002  -  Shareholders of Hull McGuire PC, a corporate law boutique based in Pittsburgh, recently participated in two conferences of the International Business Law Consortium (IBLC) -- one in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and another in Kitzbühel, Austria.

The IBLC is an arm of the Center for International Legal Studies (CILS), based in Salzburg, Austria.  The IBLC is composed of approximately 70 law and accounting firms under 100 lawyers in size with one IBLC member firm located in each major city across the globe.  Hull McGuire is the Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania member of the IBLC.

From March 6 until March 12, Hull McGuire shareholders Julie McGuire and Dan Hull met in Buenos Aires with approximately 20 lawyers representing law firms from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Peru, the United Kingdom and the U.S.  The purpose of the Buenos Aires conference was to discuss and devise ways to serve corporate clients of IBLC law firms which are doing business or establishing subsidiaries in foreign jurisdictions through the use of the IBLC organization.

Subsequently, between March 16 and March 23, shareholder Dan Hull participated in a conference near Kitzbühel, Austria at the Lebenberg Palace focusing on international aspects of protecting intellectual property.  The Kitzbühel program was conducted by the CILS, the parent organization of the IBLC.  It was attended by several U.S. firms and 40 additional firms from 35 countries.  Classes and discussions were held in 2 hour segments in both the early morning and late afternoon for 5 days so that participants could work or telecommute during the day.

According to Hull, the IBLC and the CILS tangibly benefit current Hull McGuire clients.

"Hull McGuire is a relatively small firm with clients normally serviced by much larger law firms -- often with offices in Europe, Asia or South America," Hull said.  "Although our role as the Pittsburgh IBLC member has resulted in new incoming work for us from abroad, our participation in the IBLC has also provided our long-standing clients with first-rate lawyers to serve them in most key cities in the world when the need arises."

"Clients really like the idea" Hull continued, "of having these strategically located firms -- often boutiques very much like Hull McGuire -- willing and able to serve them abroad.  Our experiences with each IBLC or CILS firm have thus far been very positive."

The IBLC, also headquartered in Salzburg, was established in 1995 by the CILS to assist law and accounting firms in participating in CILS's publishing, conference, study, professional development, research and fellowship programs.  IBLC membership is extended by the CILS.

The IBLC and the CILS hold eight conferences each year at venues all over the globe.
