“I am really looking forward to chairing our flagship in-house annual conference 2019 on 13 June in Edinburgh, which we expect to sell out. With a wide range of sessions delivering on key themes of “collaborate, respond and innovate”, the programme includes black letter law updates on contracts, employment and data protection.
