Charles Russell Speechlys SA appointed as Swiss national reporter at the AIJA 2017 Congress held in Tokyo
The International Association of Young Lawyers’ (AIJA’s) 55th Congress in Tokyo (28 August to 1st September) devoted its entire scientific program to the new challenges and possibilities in Artificial Intelligence.
The AIJA Private Clients Commission’s working session considered the contemporary challenges which arise in connection with accessing and safeguarding digital assets on death. The working session considered a number of these challenges, including ownership of digital assets, valuations, inheritance tax, access to the digital assets, password storage, and digital wills. Christophe Levet and Grégoire Uldry of Charles Russell Speechlys SA drafted the AIJA Swiss National Report.
Together with Mrs Mari Nakajima, in-house Counsel of Microsoft Japan, Mr. Takamiki Nishikawa, Vice President and senior Counsel of Fox Networks Group and Mr. Naoya Bessho, General Counsel of Yahoo Japan, Grégoire Uldry joined the panel to present the Swiss legislative and judicial responses in practice and to discuss the gaps in the law from a private client’s perspective.
Given the relevance of this topic both nationally and worldwide, Charles Russell Speechlys SA will be holding a seminar on “Estate planning and digital assets” on 24 October 2017 (Geneva) and 25 October 2017 (Zurich).
For more information, please contact Grégoire Uldry.
