3/15/18 – Brexit: A compelling discussion led by Seamus Woulfe, Attorney General of Ireland
Join us for a discussion on how Ireland and other EU countries plan to address the Brexit financial threat, impacts on trade, import taxes, or tariffs, employment and the potential return of the border. This discussion will be held at K&L Gates LLP, 925 4th Ave. Suite 2900, Seattle, WA 98104.
Our featured speaker is Seamus Wolfe, Attorney General of Ireland. The Attorney General, Seamus Woulfe SC was appointed in June of 2017. He is the legal adviser to the Government and is therefore the chief law officer of the State. The Attorney General is responsible for vindicating the rights of the Irish citizens, maintaining the highest standards of the legal profession and is the point of contact between the judiciary and other branches of government. His role is especially demanding in an era where Brexit is likely to produce complex legal concerns.
