Monckton Chambers launches first webinar series with more to follow

06 Apr 2020

Adapting to the challenge and not cancelling existing arrangements for a series of seminars by the Commercial Law Juniors at Monckton Chambers was the motivation behind Monckton’s first foray into webinars. Resending invites to invite contacts to zoom and virtually attend the original roundtable discussions resulted in an audience of over 175 tuning in to speakers William Hooper and Alfred Artley who delivered talks on ‘Frustration & Force Majeure in a COVID19 Context’ and ‘Enforcement of ‘hybrid’ foreign penal Judgments’.

Last week’s successful inaugural webinar is now being followed by:

Thursday 9th April – 5pm
Ciar McAndrew will focus on ‘Evidence from abroad’: Obtaining evidence in Arbitral proceedings from witnesses based in other EU Member States.

Thursday 16th April – 5pm
William Hooper will present on ‘Late amendments: pitfalls and procedure’.

William recently acted for the successful party in Fisken v Carl [2019] EWHC 3360 (Comm) which concerned very late amendments to make allegations of fraud in the purchase of the world’s most expensive car.

Monckton Chambers is currently extending the webinar formula to feature other practice areas.
