Business Law



WASHINGTON, D.C./PITTSBURGH/SAN DIEGO - April 3, 2004 - Hull McGuire PC shareholder Daniel Hull will attend two international business law conferences in May in Rome, Italy.

Between May 5 and 7, Hull will attend a three day meeting in Rome of the Business Development Group (BDG) of the International Business Law Consortium (IBLC). The IBLC, based in Salzburg, Austria, is a group of 60 law and accounting firms in strategically located cities worldwide. It is an arm of the Center for International Legal Studies (CILS), also in Salzburg.

IBLC Business Law Group

The IBLC’s Business Development Group is a London-based off-shoot of the IBLC which Hull co-founded in 1999 with lawyers from Western Europe, South America, Asia and Australia. It provides a working legal network for corporate clients to use across the globe.

"Each of the law firms in the Business Development Group is very much like Hull McGuire: high-end corporate boutiques who work internationally," Hull said. "BDG firms are carefully screened to ensure quality and attentive customer service." "Fortune 500 clients are using the IBLC’s Business Development Group rather than using traditional large law firms -- with much higher overheads -- for international legal services," according to Hull. "Clients get high quality legal products with real service and lower price."

Congress of Fellows

The second Rome meeting is of the Second Annual Convocation of the Congress of Fellows of the CILS, an honorary group in which Hull is a Fellow. Membership is based on contributions to the international business law community in publishing or speaking. The Congress of Fellows meeting, also in Rome, is May 7-9. Subjects discussed will be international Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and doing business in Italy. The first Convocation of the Congress of Fellows was in Budapest, Hungary in 2003, which Hull also attended. Firms from 32 countries attended.

In the May meetings in Rome, Hull will speak on ADR internationally.
