On June 5, 2008, Michael J. Grace, counsel with Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, will moderate a panel titled "Why, When Should You Consider Moving to IFRS?" as part of the Global Financial Reporting Convergence Conference in New York. The event, initiated by Financial Executives International (FEI) and sponsored by BNA Tax and Accounting, has the theme "The World is Moving to IFRS: Are You?"

No development more significantly concerns accounting and financial professionals these days than the accelerating evolution toward a single global set of financial accounting rules likely patterned on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Through their representation of BNA Tax and Accounting, Buchanan lawyers in Washington, D.C., are immersed in these changes.
