Wong Fleming Presentation in Hamburg, Germany on the
Limitation of Presidential Powers

 
Daniel Fleming and Linda Wong, Partners of Wong Fleming’s Princeton, New Jersey office, presented a seminar on the recent election and the limitations of powers of the President to withdraw from treaties, issue and cancel executive orders and congressional executive agreements, and affect international law and policy.
 
Wong Fleming’s European Alliance Partner, Schomerus & Partner, hosted the presentation on December 12, 2016 in its Hamburg, Germany office. 
 
This timely presentation, “How President Trump Can Affect Your Business and Your Future,” discussed how America’s 45th President might affect business in Europe, in general and Germany, specifically. Clients of Schomerus & Partner along with the members of the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce and several German Trade Business Associations were in attendance.
