"Location, location, location", say the estate agents. If you are spending your time speculating on the effect of Brexit on your clients, it is time to remind yourself of the lawyer's equivalent: 'Contract, contract, contract. The glue that holds the commercial legal world together is contract, and knowledge of changes in the way contracts are interpreted is the commercial lawyer's life-blood.

SCL has arranged a transfusion of that very life-blood – knowledge of the latest developments in contract law - from the contract law guru, Richard Stephens.*

Richard Stephens' Annual IT Contracts Update 2017 will take place on 2 February at Eversheds Leeds. He will be reviewing judgments and distilling lessons from them, spotting cases that might well affect your clients and your contracts, even though the subject-matter may be far removed from tech law. You also get the benefit of an insight into Richard's own approaches and methods. It really is an unmissable event at a price that no commercial provider can match.

This seminar is of relevance to both lawyers in private practice and in-house lawyers. You really cannot advise your clients or do business without keeping right up to date with the latest decisions of the courts.

* For the avoidance of doubt, Richard Stephens wishes to make it clear that he is not giving anyone any of his blood.

Richard Stephens is a very well-known lawyer, having worked for 30 years in the IT Law area, advising both market leaders and SME's on a wide variety of commercial transactions, re-negotiations and disputes, crossing many fields, including major procurements, outsourcing and Intellectual Property.

Richard is recognised as one of the leaders in the IT Legal scene, being listed as such in Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession. His work for the industry is also noted, he is a past Chair of SCL and is an SCL Fellow. Richard is also Chair of the Legal Affairs Group at Intellect and has been a frequent speaker at both national and international conferences.

Richard is also known in the area of IT disputes, where he also works as an independent mediator and arbitrator (he is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators).

This event will also be held in London on 8 February 2017.
