Union Internationale des Avocats
Howard Spiegler and Charles Goldstein spoke at the annual Congress of the Union Internationale des Avocats (International Association of Lawyers) (UIA) in Seville, Spain. The UIA is a well-regarded international organization of several thousand attorneys from 110 countries and our close involvement with the organization has resulted in many business referrals and important contacts. Howard spoke on legal issues involving modern art on a panel alongside Monica Dugot of Christie’s, as well as other art lawyers from Italy, Brussels, Zurich and Madrid. Charles Goldstein spoke on a separate panel which focused on attempts to rectify human rights abuses in the Holocaust era with panelists from Italy, Barcelona, Paris and Brussels.
