On 20 January, LexisNexis UK hosted a virtual event for in-house senior counsel in partnership with Flex legal and Radius Law. Speakers at this event included Iain Larkins and Sandra Martins from Radius Law, Seffton Samuels, (operations director and general counsel at SMMT) Ian Leedham, (head of legal at Euro Car Parts) Ken Milnes (in-house counsel) and PSLs from LexisNexis UK.
Building on the success of a similar event in November, January’s event focused on what the end of the transition period means for in-house counsel who deal with contracts, data protection and employment law.

As well as providing a high-level overview of the current situation and potential implications, the speakers answered questions from attendees. All questions asked have been posted to Radius Law’s slack channel, where you are free to view them and submit your own questions, which will be answered by expert practitioners.
