Osborne Clarke LLP – Future of work

For several years now, we’ve heard the phrase “work is an activity not a place”. The global pandemic has put those words to the test as never before. Organisations are re-evaluating their business premises: are they a space for all workers to do their work? Or a shared space for meeting, collaboration and training? Fuelled by the automation and digitalisation of work, this rethink will impact work spaces, homes and workforces of the future. Join us for an interactive workshop where we’ll discuss the future of work through a legal lens, exploring opportunities and challenges for lawyers and clients.

Debevoise & Plimpton LLP – Private equity and private funds

The world of private equity, although frequently featured in the financial and business media, can seem complex and impenetrable. Our workshop will explain the main features of this highly topical, sometimes controversial and financially powerful part of the financial services sector – and one of Debevoise’s core practice areas. You will first hear what “private equity” firms do and how they do it. Then we will explore the incentive structures and some of the key issues involved in a fund formation assignment. You will have an opportunity to evaluate and propose amendments to some headline terms. Our experienced lawyers will help you to navigate the negotiation process.

Pinsent Masons LLP – A day in the life of an environment and energy lawyer

Our workshop will focus on the types of transactions and regulatory advice we provide in this fast paced and dynamic area of law – including climate change and emission reductions; the remediation of contaminated land; nuclear regulatory advice and environmental prosecutions.  Two of our lawyers will walk you through a legal case study that focuses on corporate environmental due diligence; the key risk areas for environmental prosecutions and how environmental liabilities can be mitigated.  There will be plenty of time for group discussion,  for you to ask questions and for us to give you tips on how to take forward a career in environmental and energy law.

Mills & Reeve have one of the leading sports law teams in the UK, regularly representing players, clubs, agents or sports governing bodies before Sports Tribunals on matters such as anti-doping, match fixing, disciplinary matters and the like.
