During 18-23 September 2016, the Annual Conference of the International Bar Association was held in Washington, D.C., and four members of Vázquez Tercero & Zepeda (VTZ) attended to this event that gathers more than 6,000 lawyers from around the globe. Partners Eduardo Zepeda (pictured below), expert in customs and tax matters and Adrián B. Vázquez, expert in international trade and dispute settlement, as well as associate Emilio Arteaga Vázquez, winner of an IBA scholarship, represented the firm in Washington, D.C.
Our members attended trade and customs related sessions, which were mainly organized by the Trade and Customs Committee as well as the International Sales Committee, including those titled “Life Cycle of a Product”, “Navigating Sanctions in a Changing World”, “Expanding Reach of Trade and Dispute Resolution”, “Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and its Impact on Transatlantic relations”, among others. Further, VTZ members listened to the valuable insights of Ambassador Robert Holleyman, who sat in for Ambassador Froman, on US international trade polices including the future of Transpacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
In sum, our members had an excellent week in Washington D.C., strengthening VTZ ‘s relations with international law firms and expanding our network.
