Automotive lawyers conference - 17 May 2018

It’s difficult to remember a time in automotive when there has been so much uncertainty.

With Brexit on the horizon, seismic shifts in regulation, changing mobility/fuel technologies, new retail formats and large group action litigation underway it’s difficult to predict how the sector will develop in the next 10 years.

There will be losers, but for those with the right judgement calls, there will be winners.

Industry lawyers have a crucial voice to help guide their businesses to success.  Join peers and industry experts at our 2018 annual Automotive Lawyers conference to network, share experiences and debate opinion to help you navigate the future with confidence.

The day will also include guided business tours of the new 'state of the art' Lancaster Jaguar Land Rover retail site - not to be missed!
