solutions with respect to the intersection of U.S. - E.U. law.

The event will address theTransatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership
, which will be the world's largest bilateral trade and investment deal that
is still being negotiated between the European Union and the United States.
As both sides struggle to secure an agreement that will apparently pump
billions of euros into economies on both sides of the Atlantic, the summit
will analyze what this deal will mean for leading multinationals in the E.U.,
along with several issues also raised by the potential partnership, such as:
a rise in antitrust concerns, corporate tax implications and complexities of
data protection. The summit speakers will use their diverse experiences to
draw an up-to-date picture of the interaction of states and businesses across
the E.U. and U.S.

partnership with the U.S. The event will offer an update from theEuropean
