Our latest COVID-19 information - now taking bookings for online webinar courses

Training courses & Webinars:
Legal

Legal agreements and contracts provide the foundation for businesses to operate and are fundamental to the success of a business. Without carefully constructed agreements, disputes and litigation are more likely. Our training courses have been designed to help you improve your drafting skills and keep abreast of the latest developments in international business law and best-practice.

 

Our spring/summer 2020 programme of London-based courses has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Our Autumn schedule is now in place, with options for attending online webinar-based courses.
