Studio Legale Padovan Hosts International Trade Compliance Conference

Feb 09, 2024 – Milan, Italy

Studio Legale Padovan is hosting the largest international trade compliance conference in Milan, February 15-16, 2024. The event is co-organised with AT+ICA, European Association of Trade + Investment Controls & Compliance Attorneys.

We have planned this conference for many months knowing that the international trade has transformed greatly and the most recent geopolitical developments of the past few years have created new challenges, hurdles but also opportunities. The purpose of this event is to answer the most stringent questions:

  • how do we deal with current challenges in the international trade?
  • how to advance our own business agendas in a safe and secure way?
  • how to better balance limitations, sanctions and opportunities?

The proper answers can only be found from the exquisite combination of guest speakers and experts that we have assembled: renowned global experts, representatives of large international and national institutions, brilliant legal minds will contribute to the two-day conference.

Marco Padovan, Managing Partner Studio Legale Padovan:

"Our firm has built and maintained its leading position in the complex practice of international trade regulations and compliance and our strong team and our clients are testimony to this strength and expertise. Especially after the breakout of the war in Ukraine we felt it was high time we organise this unique and large international conference. Our gratitude goes to conference partners and the extraordinary international guest-speakers who accepted the invitation to contribute during the conference."

Some of the leading organisations to be represented in the conference are:

  • Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation - Italy: National Authority UAMA (Unit for the Authorisation of Armament Materials)
  • FISMA - European Commission's Directorate‑General for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union
