Helen Citron, a solicitor in Osbornes’ Private Client department, was awarded a scholarship by the International Bar Association to attend their annual conference in Washington DC in September 2016. The scholarship was awarded to Helen by the IBA’s Private Client and Individual Tax Committee after submitting an essay focussing on the proposed changes to the taxation of non-domiciled individuals.

The conference was attended by more than 6,000 lawyers from around the world.

Helen comments

“I am very grateful to the IBA’s Private Client and Individual Tax Committee for awarding me the prize. Attending the conference was an outstanding experience and provided an excellent to learn from and hear high-profile speakers.

I attended seminars led by leading private client lawyers on topics such as digital assets and the EU Succession Regulation which helped me develop my legal knowledge.

Other highlights included hearing Christine Lagarde speak at the opening ceremony and attending a lively debate about the impact of Brexit led by former MP Jack Straw”.

Jan Atkinson, Head of the Private Client department at Osbornes comments:

“This is a great achievement for Helen; especially considering the number of applications received each year to attend the conference. Attending the conference this year not only meant that Helen had the opportunity to hear from a distinguished panel of speakers, she also had the unique opportunity to hear from senior US government officials and to experience the American Presidential election up close”.

This year’s programme featured nearly 200 substantive legal sessions, workshops and panels, including topics on current events and contentious issues facing the profession.
