Litigation after Brexit, 10 months on. Wednesday 20th October 20214.00 pm - 5.00 pm Speakers: Andrew Spencer & Dominique Smith, 1 Chancery Lane   This Webinar will be delivered using Zoom Web Conferencing - would like to but unable to attend? Not to worry, all pre-booked delegates will be given access to a recording of the webinar to watch in their own time. SRA Competence B - 1 Hour   In this webinar, Andrew Spencer and Dominique Smith will discuss what’s changed; what hasn’t changed; and what’s likely to change in the future. The focus will be on jurisdiction, enforcement and recent decisions and guidance on how to navigate the post-Brexit legal landscape.   Bios: Andrew Spencer was called to the Bar in 2004, and is listed in the Legal 500 as a Band 1 practitioner in travel law. He acted for the Claimant in the seminal case of Japp v Virgin Holidays Limited, in which the Court of Appeal considered the time at which applicable local standards should be determined for the purposes of liability under Regulation 15(2) of the Package Travel Regulations; but he is equally comfortable acting for Claimants and Defendants in all travel related claims.   Ranked by the Legal 500 2021 as a Rising Star, Dominique Smith was called in 2016 and has a busy practice in travel law. She undertakes work for both Claimants and Defendants in package travel claims, contractual disputes, and other related claims. Dominique has a particular interest in cross-border clinical negligence claims and regularly appears in the Coroners’ Courts.   FEES DASLS Members/Affiliates/Associates: £40.00 + VAT (£48.00)Non-members: £50.00 + VAT (£60.00)   We will provide a VAT invoice for payment.
