The French Notaries Conference was held in Brussels this year from 2-5 June 2019.

IAPPR were represented by several of our European members and our increased engagement and awareness is a feature of our expanding organisation.

International family and estate issues, notarial challenges and international mobility were the key themes of the event.

“Notaries are not like any other legal professional in situations that have a foreign element. They are the operators of amicable international private law. They are the ones who determine under which legal configuration a case falls. They are the ones who draft contracts that can cross borders to secure families and estates.”

– Marc Cagniart, President, 115th Congres of Notaires 

We were able to discuss our work with fellow probate research firms and notaries alike, many of whom were highly appreciative of the efforts and ambitions of the IAPPR in raising standards.
