Local accountant chairs two-day international event in USA

Roger Isaacs, a Forensic Partner at local accountancy firm Milsted Langdon, has recently returned from the U.S. where he chaired the North American Regional Conference of the global MGI Worldwide accountancy network.

He joined fellow accountants and advisers at the prestigious The New York Marriott Marquis Hotel on Times Square.

As chairman, Roger oversaw a meeting of the network’s International Committee which has representatives from Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Australasia and South America as well as from Europe and the UK.  He then opened the conference proper with a presentation given by him and MGI’s Chief Executive Officer, Clive Bennett.

Speaking about his attendance at the two-day event, Roger said: “The North America Region Meeting was a big success and our members were able to discuss a number of important topics, while also enjoying all that the Big Apple has to offer.

“We regularly work with our partners in the U.S. on trans-Atlantic matters, so events like this help us to cement relationships and gain new insights. This was particularly useful in the context of the fact that although cannabis remains illegal in the UK there has been a huge growth in the legitimate sale of cannabidiol and. related products.

“Thanks to the knowledge we have gained at the conference, Milsted Langdon is ideally placed to advise firms in the UK or UK subsidiaries of overseas groups in the sector on the complexities that arise from operating in this highly regulated sector.”

In his official role as Chairman of MGI, Roger has attended numerous events during the last 12 months, giving him a unique insight into the world of global finance and business.

MGI Worldwide is a Top 20 international network of audit, tax, accounting & consulting firms and is made up of more than 5,230 professionals located in 92 different nations.
