Date: 7 July 2021

Time: 08:30am – 10:00am GMT

We are pleased to invite you to our inaugural financial services academy. The academy will take the form of a series of online webinars that are aimed at up-and-coming in-house regulatory lawyers and compliance professionals, as well as anyone in need of a refresher. During the session we will break down some of the complexity of the UK regime to help attendees understand the legal basis on which their institutions operate.

In the first of our academy series lawyers from our financial services team will guide participants through the basics of our financial services regime, exploring questions that frequently arise from our clients. The team will use real life examples to give attendees a toolkit for approaching the issues in a practical way. They will also provide insights into some of the key issues and tips about what to look out for to avoid things going wrong.
