In-House Lawyers - 12 June 2020
On demand webinar, focusing on practical solutions to utilise from home in agreements and dealings with business, data and digital law and how covid-19 has changed legal privilege.
This webinar took place on Thursday 11 June 2020 and is now available on-demand.
As you might expect – our regular in house lawyer sessions aren’t happening for obvious reasons. No doubt you’re dealing with some of the issues around the current disruption – working from home, issues with suppliers, landlords, employees and their entitlements and getting funding for the business – no doubt that’s on your desk right now. But here’s the thing – it won’t always be. In a few months’ time, you’ll hopefully still be dealing with legal issues, but some of those will have moved on.
For that reason – to be up to date on what’s changed we’d encourage you to dial into an alternative virtual couple of sessions – dealing with the changes in the law that you’ll still need to know about.
Book on now and relax knowing in the future (post-pandemic) you will still have the skills you need to survive in the marketplace.
- Legal Privilege for in house lawyers – what the recent changes mean and why that matters - Paul Kirkpatrick
- Boosting Sales - Affiliate Marketing and the Commercial Agent Regulations - Alex Watt (please note: this topic has now been changed from the original invite)
The sessions focus on practical solutions that you can utilise from home in your agreements and your dealings with business..

It is clear that the digital landscape, often termed cyberspace, is a man-made environment, in which human behaviour dominates and where technology both influences and aids our role in it — through the internet, telecoms and networked computer systems, which are often interdependent.
