Cross-regulatory Issues in 2014


We are delighted to invite you to our Public and Regulatory Law Annual Conference, which will take place on Tuesday 8 July in our new London office, Riverbank House.
We are delighted that Paul Philip, the recently appointed Chief Executive of the Solicitors Regulation Authority, has accepted our invitation to join us and be our keynote speaker.

As the Regulatory environment continuously changes we find that our clients often look to one another to try and foresee problems and solutions.  Whilst professional and entity regulation are different a number of bodies undertake both and although every profession tends to have its own particular approach and priorities there are many common issues in this field. This event is aimed at CEOs, Council members, senior directors, senior managers and in-house counsel working in regulation who want to hear fresh ideas about what one sector might have to teach them about their work.  Paul Philip, who was previously the Deputy Chief Executive at the General Medical Council, will speak about his new role in the legal sector and his personal experience of learning from the work of two major regulators.

A member of our Regulatory Team will deliver our regular and much appreciated case law update, which, in keeping with the theme of the conference will focus on those cases which have lessons of wide application.   

Our Head of Department, Sarah Ellson will then speak on the Regulation of Healthcare Professionals Bill which by July will have moved on as those affected and the Department of Health develop their responses.  Again the focus for our conference will not be the detail but some of the regulatory themes that we see emerging from the discussions around the bill. 

We do hope you are able to join us. We would encourage you to register your place early to avoid disappointment.
