Neil McGregor elected to the Board of the British-Romanian Chamber of Commerce and helps it secure UK public funding to develop its activities

At the recent General Meeting of members of the British-Romanian Chamber of Commerce (BRCC), Neil McGregor, Managing Partner of the law firm McGregor & Partners, was elected as a director of the BRCC.

“I feel honoured to become part of this team and to be able to contribute to strengthening the relationships between the UK and Romania, all the more so as this was the very first thought when I came to practise law Romania in 1996. Ever since then, our objectives have included offering practical legal and business assistance to our local clients to enter the UK market successfully, as well to our clients from the UK to be able to build sound and profitable businesses in Romania. This position in the BRCC therefore confirms the mission I have assumed at a more formal level”, stated Neil McGregor.

At the same time, Charles Crocker, Managing Partner of Front Line Consulting and Stan Dunlop, Partner of Dunlop Mills were appointed in similar positions alongside Neil McGregor. As such, the entire Board of BRCC is formed of: Raymond Breden, Executive Chairman (KPMG), Charles Crocker, (Front Line Consulting), Lucian Danilescu (Mares / Danilescu / Mares), Stan Dunlop PhD (Dunlop Mills), Corina Stoica (Alison Hayes), James Grindley (Certasig), Daniel Kearvell (DHL Romania), Colin Lovering (Achieve International, Neil McGregor (McGregor & Partners), Florina Tanase (Vodafone Romania), Corina Tanasie (Gleeds Romania) and Richard Reese (Chief Executive, BRCC).

The BRCC is in the process of being accredited on behalf of the UK government to receive British public funding for activities to promote trade between the UK and Romania, and Neil McGregor and McGregor & Partners are providing legal support to the BRCC for the accreditation process. As part of this process, Neil McGregor prepared a new constitutive document of the BRCC which was adopted unanimously at the recent General Meeting. Neil McGregor said:

“I am delighted that the new constitutive document which I prepared for the BRCC was not only approved on behalf of the UK authorities but was also unanimously approved by members of the BRCC at the General Meeting. My colleagues and I look forward to assisting the BRCC with the remaining steps to obtain full accreditation for the BRCC on behalf of the UK government.”

Ray Breden, executive president of the BRCC, said:

“We are very pleased with the practical UK and Romanian legal support that Neil and his colleagues are providing to the BRCC in strengthening our business and obtaining official accreditation for the BRCC. The funding from the UK government that accreditation will secure will allow the BRCC to significantly develop our activities and to support bilateral trade and business between the UK and Romania. I congratulate Neil on his election as a director of the BRCC and look forward to collaborating with him in these exciting times for the BRCC and our members.”
