That’ll be two Hamburgers, please??


Sherrards’ Nicole Marmor and Geraldine Fabre attended a recent gathering of the Alliott Group German-speaking members in Hamburg.

The meeting of German-speaking representatives from the alliance firms included members from all over Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands, as well as Nicole and Geraldine, with most of the meeting being conducted in German.

Topics included the impact of Brexit on continental Europe and the issues and opportunities arising, the development of the “gig” economy and closer co-operation between alliance members.

Chair of the Alliott Group German circle, Michael Kohler (senior partner of Audalis, Kohler, Punge & Partner), comments, “We really appreciate the input from Nicole and Geraldine, particularly their contribution on ways in which German-speaking members of our alliance can continue to work closely together with our British counterparts, following Brexit.  It’s really helpful that our respective firms can provide our clients and contacts with an over-arching perspective on what’s happening.”

Nicole Marmor comments, “Sherrards can only benefit from this level of insight. Speaking specifically from a global mobility angle, whatever happens with Brexit, we now live in a very global world. Our clients – whether they’re British, German, Spanish or French or any other nationality – are really going to need to handle their personal affairs across borders, so estate-planning, management, legacy issues, immigration or employment support are more important than ever.  To be able to call upon this level of support across Germany and Europe is incredibly valuable to us.”

Geraldine Fabre adds: “Indeed, with Brexit almost upon us, sharing intelligence and having access to current thinking from across the continent is really helpful, in terms of informing our thinking and helping our clients, contacts and intermediaries, banks, accountants and other professionals who we work with.”
