March 23 | Restructuring: In the current economic climate, an increasing number of companies are having to deal with issues around the insolvency, or potential insolvency, of a trading partner resulting in the need to consider matters such as supply disruption, non-payment of invoices, enforcement of retention of title rights, set-off, the impact of administration, and the termination or suspension of contracts.

March 28 | Data Protection: As we approach GDPR’s fifth birthday, this webinar will examine the ICO’s approach to its increased fining powers and how imposing monetary penalties fits into the ICO’s wider strategic priorities.

April 27 | Financial Services: On December 9, 2022, the Chancellor announced a set of reforms to drive growth and competitiveness in the financial services sector.
