In-house lawyers forum

11 June 2021

This online event took place on 10 June 2021 and is now available on-demand. The content in this recording was correct as of the original webinar date.

Whilst you were likely distracted (yes, us too) with the changes close at hand, working from home and Covid-19 related changes… the law has quietly been moving on.

Contracts have been fought over, changes made to case law, new legislation passed and new technologies discovered, considered and decided upon. That nagging feeling you used to get when you left home (did you lock the door before you left?) has been replaced with a nagging feeling that maybe you’ve not been keeping on top of all of this stuff and that maybe your advice might be out of date.

Sound familiar? Don’t worry – we’ve got your back. Catch up on the second of two sessions, where we covered what’s changed and what you need to know about. This session focused on practical solutions that you can utilise with your business.

In this second session, our Partner Sophie Ashcroft gave an update on damages and commercial disputes and Nick Smee covered the route to net-zero – how the sustainability agenda and the need to innovate will impact who you contract with, and how.

REACH Registration post-Brexit

Although the UK’s departure from the EU means that the EU REACH regulation no longer applies, UK REACH has stepped in to fill the gap, and UK-based companies exporting to the EU are now facing two chemicals regulation frameworks to deal with when before there was just one. Is your company ready for the challenge?
