Berlin meets lawyers and businessmen from West Coast of Irland

On Friday the 22nd of March 2019 Thomas kindly hosted a delegation of Irish lawyers including the former president of the Irish chamber of lawyers Adrian Bourke. The group discussed the recent influences of Brexit on Germany reflecting the views to a post-brexit perspective. Topics were inter alia the possible transformation of Limiteds and LLPs in Germany, the influence on the trade of goods or the uphold of the Erasmus program as well as tuition fees and the way the public debate was held before the referendum took place. Despite the seemingly frantic talks in greater public media the talk worked quite, steady and rational.

The group came to the conclusion that a clear picture is not easy to be draw as the overall process between parliaments and governments is fluid and flexible. Though that uncertainty has already lead to some outcomes such as the move of the financial sector in London. What remains clear is that the overall results of Brexit shall not hinder the connection and exchange between the people of the different countries as seen with this talk.

Funding crowds move into the finance mainstream

Roller Having its origin in the USA, crowdfunding has become a real alternative to traditional ways of investment, as it has expanded all around the world. The advantages are obvious: lending decisions are made much more quickly, the terms of diverse offers are more flexible and the default rate is increasing compared to conventional ways of getting a loan. Therefore the USA as well as the UK in Europe have already introduced new regulatory structures, in order to enable the upcoming market to benefit from its novel structure, rather than boxing crowdfunding- as well as crowdlending-platforms and -systems into existing, domestic legal structures.

Together with a number of IBA-colleagues I have contributed to the following text about how crowdfunding finds its way through common ways of assets:

Find out about the risks and new approaches crowdfunding has to face and what will change in the following years. Tell me what you think about it and the possibilities one could use by introducing new regulatory structures in a national or even supranational context.
