AGG Partner Philip G. Skinner spoke at the International Bar Association (IBA) Global Investments in Real Estate Conference on May 19-22, 2010, in Vienna, Austria. Mr. Skinner was the only U.S.-based speaker among more than 25 speakers from around the world. He discussed “Hot Topics in Cool Times,” regarding the US perspective of current events in real estate. The conference was attended by more than 140 representatives from law firms around the world. As a result of his participation, the IBA asked Mr. Skinner to become a member of the Executive Board of its Cross-border Real Estate Committee and chair next year’s IBA Cross-border Real Estate Conference, which will be held in the US next spring. Mr. Skinner’s accomplishments were mentioned in a recent edition of the Real Estate Rooster. To view the PowerPoint presentation from his speech, please click here.
