FLI concluded its 10th Semi-annual Conference

Date: 
Saturday, 23 May, 2009

On the occasion of FLI's 10th semi-annual conference, FLI NET partners from 23 countries from around the world gathered together in the lovely setting of Istanbul, home to our local FLI NET Turkey Partner -AKINCI LAW OFFICES- to discuss a number of timely and pressing subjects given the current state of affairs in our global recessionary economy.

Partners from as far away as Tokyo, Seoul, and Kuala Lumpur joined the European core of our members, together with FLI's growing market in former CIS territories of Belarus, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia.

The forum convened for this conference could not have been better chosen, given that Istanbul remains the cross-way between two continents. Only the magical city of Istanbul can boost the historical accolade of having been the seat of three empires (Byzantine, Roman, and Ottoman).

With such cross-cultural metropolitan backdrop, FLI NET Partners from 23 of the countries gathered to continue to harness the power that FLI business model provides to all our clients world-wide.
