Russell-Cooke experts were actively involved in the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and EU Commission DG TAXUD in the organisation of a high level conference held in the European Commission in Brussels on cross-border inheritance tax issues.

Discussion followed from the European Commission's own initiative on inheritance tax published towards the end of 2011. The event was chaired by Richard Frimston (partner and Head of the Private Client team) who was also a key note speaker.

Other speakers included Patrick Delas (senior associate in the French law team) and senior European Commission officials, academia, STEP experts from different EU Member States and Maltese member of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), Vincent Farrugia.
