Representatives from Smith Cooper were among 100 senior professional advisors from 27 countries in Berlin last week for the EMEA Regional Conference of Alliott Group, one of the world’s leading international associations of accounting and law firms.

The exclusive event, held from 10-13 May 2017, connected accountants and lawyers from 54 independent firms around the world to exchange views on the latest developments in the international trading environment and to learn how to improve services to clients operating across geographic borders.

Speakers from business, government and professional consultancies shared insights into trends impacting the world of business, what clients expect from their professional advisors and the current and future opportunities offered by Germany and other countries in the EMEA region and beyond.

Smith Cooper has a growing number of clients who are involved in cross border business. Our attendance at this conference benefits both these clients and those who are considering entering new geographic markets, by strengthening our relationships with professional experts across the world,” comments Dan Bowtell, a Partner at Smith Cooper.

“The relationships we have built and the knowledge we have gained at the conference enable Smith Cooper to advise our clients on how changes to the economic and political environment will affect their business, how they can adapt and where in the world growth opportunities can be found.”

Attendees from Smith Cooper also received cultural awareness training from Alliott Group commercial partner Farnham Castle Intercultural Training, further enabling the firm to support clients in developing a global mind set, communicating more effectively and building rapport faster when working across borders.
