Europe: EU / UK regulatory roundup
A round up of recent regulatory developments in the EU and UK.
We would be delighted to welcome you to one of our popular industry academies and briefings, providing insight into and knowledge of key market sectors.
From January through to April, our employment academy will provide an update on the latest hot topics affecting your business. The academy is aimed at less experienced in-house employment lawyers and HR professionals; the objective is to provide guidance on wellknown employment law documents and processes to ensure attendees understand the significance of all of their provisions and steps. Our “Back from a break?” sessions are aimed at in-house employment lawyers and HR professionals who may have been away from the office for a while and require an update on recent developments.
In January, experts in the technology sector will provide an introduction to cryptocurrencies and discuss the potential applications of the block chain technology for financial institutions.
Our tax team will be providing a series of seminars on the latest developments, focussing on the provisions outlined in the draft Finance Bill and the effect they may have on the structuring of transactions.
The banking academy is designed for anyone interested in a greater understanding of LMA style facility agreements and associated key debt finance legal topics. There are a number of sessions taking place over the course of the week (March 7 – March 10) which can be booked individually or as a course.
The list of training topics in this brochure represents a selection of the extensive training we offer to clients. We regularly update our learning and development programme to reflect current hot topics.
A number of the legal sessions in this programme are available as webinars. Please contact Gina Whellams if you wish to register for a webinar.
