Our Informed Counsel programme ensures you can access our expertise and know-how through panel-based events,  webinars, tech demos, videos, seminars, training, networking opportunities and our regular digital digest; enabling you to remain informed in an ever-changing legal landscape.

Informed Counsel Conference
Events, seminars and webinars

Our Informed Counsel Conference provides practical insights and key legal updates relevant to all in-house counsel.

Last year we ran three conferences in three different locations.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we'll be providing an online programme of content exclusive to our Informed Counsel programme. Keep an eye out for more information!

"An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest" (Benjamin Franklin, 1708-1790)

We think Mr Franklin had a very good point – knowledge is at the core of our services and is critical to the way in which we manage our relationship with you. An integral part of this offer are our events and seminars. We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver commercially focused, insightful, and practical training.

Our programme offers you and your colleagues the opportunity to access a wide range of training and knowledge initiatives. We will help ensure that you and your team are up to date with the very latest legal, regulatory and practice developments and the likely impact on you, your team, your industry and sector. Our programme provides a direct route into our lawyers’ expertise, opening lines of communication. We can also assist you with both your own personal and career development and with the delivery of strategic priorities.

Networking with like-minded people is core to understanding the landscape that others face in the legal market. Our Informed Counsel programme offers a variety of networking opportunities, including our annual GCs dinner in London. 

For our last GC's dinner the focus was on 'Building strategic partnerships with your business.'

We understand that aligning a legal team’s strategy with that of the wider business is a challenge that most legal teams face.

During this session, GCs discussed these ongoing demands and how innovative and technical driven measures are helping to overcome such challenges, along with how optimising relationships with external advisers can provide value to businesses and ensure greater efficiency.

"This was a welcome opportunity to think about contracting in the round, away from the up-close work of drafting and negotiating real contracts in real time, when more often than not one sticks to tried and tested practice for the sake of speed. More please."

"A superb series of seminars, well-constructed, brilliantly presented and highly informative."

"The interactive dialogue between the presenters keeps it lively, engaging and discursive, and the different perspectives from which the presenters comment is informative."

"A fantastic format. Really practical and useful. Also very professionally delivered."
