Each year, I give a number of seminars to the profession.
I speak at the Ropewalk Chambers Personal Injury conference in March of each year, dealing with matters particularly pertinent to my colleagues who practise in that field.
I also speak from time to time to the ACL, usually in London.
I also each year undertake a series of talks entitled “A conversation on costs”, where I come to solicitors/lawyers offices to undertake a discursive and interactive seminar on current issues in costs, or indeed any matters of concern in relation to costs and litigation funding.
Another series of talks entitled “A question time on costs” involves me assembling a panel of barristers with an interest in costs, to answer questions submitted in advance and on the day, on any issue pertinent to costs and litigation funding. In 2016, events were held both in Manchester and in chambers in Nottingham.
I have also drafted a number of seminars, which for a reasonable fee plus travelling expenses I can deliver to your firm.
Titles in the series so far include “Solicitors and retainers”, “Costs for commercial lawyers” and “Solicitor-own client assessments: a survival guide”.
My most recent lecture, delivered in London this month, was “Litigation funding in international arbitrations after Essar v Norscot“.
