St Philips Commercial Law Seminar Success

Over 200 commercial solicitors attended a 'civil procedure update seminar' at St Philips Chambers. Originally booked only for the morning, the event proved so popular it had to be re-run for another audience in the afternoon.

The seminar, run in conjunction with Birmingham Law Society, was chaired by Lance Ashworth QC, with an expert panel of speakers headed by Ed Pepperall who, as a member of the Civil Procedure Rule Committee, provided delegates with an "insider's guide" to recent and imminent procedural reform.

Other speakers included Marc Brown and Rob Mundy who spoke on 'security for costs' and 'without prejudice privilege'.

Ed Pepperall commented: "The feedback from the seminar has been very encouraging and we are delighted that so many solicitors attended the event. We ran the event twice in order to accommodate as many people as we could and will be running it again in the future for all those who were unable to attend.

"St Philips Commercial Group has a series of seminars planned throughout the year on a variety of topics and we are hoping that they continue to be as successful as this CPR update.
