Speakers will each take around 15 minutes to briefly introduce themselves and their roles, talk to how they work with lawyers and other professionals, discuss client development challenges and tips and provide their take on trends and likely future developments in the market.

We will then (after a short break), open the floor to questions on a Chatham House rules basis.
