O’Melveny’s Reysen Speaks at the IBA European Regional Forum Conference 2012

November 21, 2012

O’Melveny & Myers LLP Brussels partner Marc Reysen spoke at the International Bar Association’s (IBA) European Regional Forum on November 21, 2012, in Warsaw.


Reysen participated in a workshop entitled, “Impact of competition law enforcement on doing business in CEE/Visegard countries.”  The discussion tackled the issue of what to do when compliance fails to prevent breaches of the law.


Reysen is active in the IBA and currently serves as Secretary of its Antitrust Committee and Co-Chair of its working group on Developments in Chinese Competition Law.


The European Regional Forum was established in 1989 to provide a focus on the IBA’s work in developing the practices of lawyers in Eastern and Central Europe under changing legal systems. The forum was also intended to act as a channel for IBA communication with the bar associations of these local lawyers.


Since 2004, the forum has been developing and strengthening the existence of the IBA within the whole of Europe by promoting the goals of the IBA to members, non-members, and others, disseminating professional know-how, and assisting the committees and other constituencies of the IBA to increase their presence in the different sub-regions of Europe, including parts of North Africa and the Middle East.
