Spring 2021 Fraud Update

Available to watch from May 1st 2021

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
 

We are delighted to present a prestigious combination of presentations for our senior fraud lawyers this spring, including seminars from three Queen’s Counsel from two specialist chambers that excel in the fraud arena. James Dawes QC and two criminal defence colleagues from 2 Harcourt Buildings, Jane Osborne QC and Tom Nicholson, provide an impressive set of update seminars, and complementing them from 33 Bedford Row, Nigel Edwards QC and his team including Robert Fitt provide the remainder of the program, which we believe is essential for more senior solicitors and barristers, and those who defend in financial crime.
