LEXTAL hosted the Trans-European Law Firms Alliance (TELFA) annual meeting in Tallinn. The conference’s purpose is to bring together young lawyers who would be able to learn something new and (re)establish contact with other professionals working in their field of practice.
In the first half of the day, the main topic of the meeting was introduced, which was cryptocurrency and everything related to it. Margus Poola introduced blockchain technology and gave an overview of its possibilities of use. Henri Ratnik and Rauno Kinkar gave an inside view with the help of real-life examples of how the work of lawyers is connected with a new currency and what questions may arise working with it. Towards the end of the day, Mats Volberg led a panel discussion where representatives from three countries shared cryptocurrency-related legislation and operating rules in their home countries.
The conference hosted almost half a hundred guests from 16 different countries. Future plans for the association and how to promote better services were also discussed. LEXTAL has been a member of TELFA since 2009.
