To mark IWD2021, Valentina Sloane QC has been interviewed in a special episode of RPC’s Taxing Matters podcast featuring “five empowering women who have all strived to encourage diversity and inclusion in the workplace”. She talks about her path to her career in tax and her experience as a woman working in the field of tax.
Anneli Howard, joins Matthew Hall and John Roberti in this podcast to discuss the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement, WTO subsidy rules, Northern Ireland Protocol and the implications for competition and state aid under the new legal regime. Listen to this episode to learn more about the present and future for these areas of law in the UK and the EU.
The podcast is part of the American Bar Association (ABA) of the Our Curious Amalgam series which explores topics in antitrust, competition, consumer protection, data protection, and privacy law around the world with leading experts in those areas. It is an amalgam because it is a group of diverse topics all in one place. It is curious because it gets the experts and asks them in-depth questions.
