About this Event

Brexit – Survive or Thrive? Learn how other legal teams are preparing

Brexit is less than two months away. There is continued uncertainty on whether a deal will be reached in time. Preparing your organisation to face the continued headwinds is challenging. What are the pitfalls to avoid? The opportunities to consider?

This unique event will let you hear from your peers on what they’re doing to prepare their organisations.

Join the discussion as we bring the world-famous, interactive World Café style event online to explore three core Brexit topics with your peers under Chatham House. Discussion will be facilitated by senior counsel and subject matter experts on each topic:

  • Data Protection

  • Employment

  • Commercial contracts

COVID-19 update

The session will also include a 10 min overview of the latest key guidance and regulatory changes in relation to COVID-19 highlighting the key priorities for legal departments to consider.
