Introducing #TLTaxCon19’s Third Keynote Speaker

Transparency & Data Protection: Is the Pendulum about to Swing Back?

We're down to our final two keynote speakers to introduce!

Filippo Noseda is a Partner in Mishcon Private and a visiting professor at King's College in London. A dual qualified English solicitor and Swiss lawyer (Rechtsanwalt), he advises clients on international tax and estate planning issues. Able to approach both common law and civil law issues from a practical perspective, he routinely advises on the establishment and restructuring of both trusts and foundations as well as on UK and international tax and succession planning issues, including family governance and disputes. Filippo has also advised a number of governments on the introduction of private foundations' laws and successfully lobbied the Swiss government on the recognition of trusts in 2007 (various amendments to ratification bill).

More recently, he appeared as an expert before the Council of Europe and the EU data protection authorities in connection with the introduction of the OECD's Common Reporting Standard (CRS) and the EU's Beneficial Ownership Registers.

A keen lecturer and avid commentator, he is rated as a leading individual in Legal 500, a Top Recommended Tax Lawyer by Spear's Magazine and as one of the UK Top Influential Private Client Lawyers by ePrivateclient. 

Legal 500 praises his "tremendous reputation" and "broad range of expertise," whilst Chambers & Partners says that he is a "major figure in co-ordinating cross-border European issues. He has got a unique character, is great fun and injects a light-hearted approach to a complex area while being very technically able."

Transparency & Data Protection: Is the Pendulum about to Swing Back?

Filippo's presentation at #TLTaxCon19 will focus on issues involving data protection and the current push by the EU and OECD for greater transparency.

Over the past few years, bankers, family offices and investment managers have had to contend with a number of rules affecting international clients, including FATCA, the Common Reporting Standard (CRS) and beneficial ownership registers.

These developments form part of everyday life and they are here to stay. However, there are huge data protection issues (risk of hacking, data breaches), and Mishcon de Reya has brought the first case against HMRC based on the new GDPR rules.

This presentation will look at some of the implications and what they might mean for you and your clients.

Hope to have you with us in Spain this fall!
