The New York State Bar and Ontario Bar Associations are partnering to present a summit on international/cross-border advisory issues. The summit is called, “1 Legal System + 2 Jurisdictions = Infinite Opportunity”. Catchy, right?
They are hoping that practicing lawyers will jump on the opportunity to be a part of this inaugural event.
The summit is scheduled to take place in Toronto and Buffalo from March 28-29, 2012. But right now, the associations are looking for attorneys from both sides of the border to participate on the various panels.
There will be three tracks for the panels: corporate/transactional issues; litigation and dispute resolution; and general practice topics. A tax topic can fit into any one of these areas. The summit will be CLE and CPD accredited for New York and Ontario lawyers, respectively.
The Summit is currently seeking proposals for panels at this exciting event.
Ideally the panels will consist of equal numbers of New York and Ontario lawyers. Each panel must have one New York and one Ontario lawyer as co-chairs or moderators. Each panel will be allotted one hour and 15 minutes.

TaxQuarry would like to submit a proposal for a panel. If you are interested in either co-chairing a panel or becoming a speaker on one of the panels, please contact us at: [email protected]
Proposals must be submitted no later than Friday, October 14, 2011.
