Following the success of our TechKnow Forum last year, we are delighted to invite you to the first of four events we will be holding in 2016.

2015 was a particularly dynamic year for the legal industry.  In our first session of the New Year, we will take a look back at the key commercial/legal developments of 2015 that will continue to shape the TMT sector in 2016. Donning our "Mystic Meg" cloaks, we will also look into our crystal ball to share with you our predictions as to how we expect the law to develop in 2016.

1. Technology Trends 

2015 saw the introduction of the Consumer Rights Act, the auction of the Public Sector Spectrum Allocation and changes to the regulation of Video-on-Demand. In our first talk, we will be examining some of the key legal changes and case-law updates from 2015 which will continue to influence and shape the technology sphere in 2016 and beyond.  

2. Privacy Trends 

The Privacy world was turned upside down in 2015. If the collapse of Safe Harbor and the agreement-in-principle of the General Data Protection Regulation and Network Information Security Directive wasn't enough to keep you occupied last year, there was also a flurry of case-law updates serving to sculpt the privacy landscape. In our second talk, our team will help you to navigate the changes which are revolutionising the privacy sphere and will discuss how these changes can impact your business; this is not a talk to miss.

3. The Digital Single Market

Bringing both technology and privacy considerations together in perfect harmony, the Digital Single Market ("DSM") was widely commented on in 2015 and highlighted the European intention to compete in the technological world on a global level. In our final talk, we will take you on a journey through the development of the DSM, detailing how it has evolved and how we anticipate it will continue to develop in 2016.

These three short seminars will be followed by an informal discussion and networking opportunity with lawyers 0-6 years PQE over pizza and beer.

TechKnow How: Bespoke training events covering current legal developments and providing junior lawyers with the practical skills you need. The sessions are delivered by Fieldfisher and focus on a wide range of technology, outsourcing, commercial, privacy and data protection issues.

TechKnow Who: These events are a chance to meet other talented lawyers facing similar professional challenges, whilst enjoying a slice of pizza and some drinks. TechKnow Who is a great way for you to grow your network and stay in touch with current contacts in an informal setting.
