Training & Workshops

A single legal training session can help your staff to identify and deal with risk and issues and know when to seek further guidance. We offer training onsite or we would be pleased to host you at our offices. Alternatively, we can provide training remotely using video conferencing facilities, enabling live Q&A sessions.

We can provide training sessions which are designed to meet the needs of your business and address new or recurring issues which your business might face. We are experienced in providing training to staff across all departments, including in-house legal counsel and sales teams, to ensure that they stay ahead of current commercial law and / or regulatory law trends which might affect them in their roles within the business.

Terms in Commercial Agreements

Our commercial law team have extensive experience in providing in house training to clients, including both in person and remote training sessions. 

Our training sessions are tailored to each user and can range from hour training sessions to full day training. 

Whilst we are able to offer bespoke training courses to your business, we are in particular able to provide expert training and analysis in respect of:

  • standard terms and conditions found in commercial agreements and ways in which you can reduce your risk and increase your protection
  • an overview of the procedures to ensure that your terms are effectively incorporated into the contract by explaining the rules on incorporation and circumstances where parties enter into negotiations which may cause a “battle of the forms” situation to arise.
  • identifying the most common clauses in contracts and ways to strengthen your position in respect of them
  • the most negotiated clauses, and enable you to recognise the legal and commercial importance of them as and when they arise through the contracting process
  • key clauses which represent a risk to you and your business
  • the procedures which need to be followed in contracts  (which is often an overlooked element to contract management). 
  • Key clauses relating to data protection and intellectual property law matters.

Legal Knowledge Training

It is vital for staff across all departments to have and develop a solid understanding of how applicable legal and regulatory requirements may impact the business from a commercial perspective, as well as how it may affect their roles within the business itself. We ensure that our training is tailored to suit your business so that we can provide a relevant insight into the legal and regulatory trends affecting your business. 

Media & Entertainment

Our team of experienced media lawyers can provide specialist legal training on media law and relevant topics, tailored to suit your business.

We are able to offer training onsite, at our offices, or an location of your choosing. Alternatively, we can provide training remotely using video conferencing facilities.

Training sessions are tailored to meet the needs of your business, addressing repeated issues or new issues your business might face and provide updates on legal developments. We are experienced in providing training to staff across all departments, including in-house legal counsel and sales teams, to ensure that they are updated and aware of current media law and / or relevant media and entertainment topics which might affect them in their roles.

Some examples of topics include:

How can my business optimise influencer marketing?
